More Languages, More Keyboards

September 15, 2009

The language APIs keep right on trucking, released recently are a handful of new translation languages, pairs, and keyboard layouts.

We've added the ability to use machine translation to or from the following languages:

  • Afrikaans
  • Belarusian
  • Icelandic
  • Irish
  • Macedonian
  • Malay
  • Persian
  • Swahili
  • Welsh
  • Yiddish

With the addition of the above the total count for language pair combination comes to a mind boggling 2550 pairs. In addition, we find the above additions exciting because, for the first time, African languages are available through the API and we now support all 23 Official European Union languages.

A few months ago we announce our virtual keyboard API and this month we've added nine new keyboard layouts:

  • Bulgarian
  • Czech
  • Greek
  • Hebrew
  • Hungarian - 101 layout
  • Slovak
  • Slovenian
  • Turkish - Q layout
  • Ukrainian - 101 layout

Here's a simple example of using the Slovak keyboard layout.
