Google Assistant Turkish support is official

Friday, December 21st, 2018

Google began beta testing Assistant in Turkish with select users several months ago. If you were holding your breath and hoping that the full rollout would come before the end of the year, you can sigh of relief. Turkish support is now official, though it may be rolling out slowly to users.

Google has localized several public Assistant pages in Turkish, including the "Google Asistan" main page, the Explore page with all the available functions, and the support pages.

Gboard now supports more than 500 languages

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

Gboard launched in December 2016, with support for about 100 different language varieties. Since then, Google has frequently announced large batches of new languages for its Android keyboard; earlier this week, another 50 made it in. All those tongues have added up fast, as Google has announced that two years after its debut, Gboard now supports more than 500 languages.

It seems the keyboard crossed the 500-language mark even before the latest batch was added; a count of the current full list of supported language variants totals 576.

Google Translate now provides better gender-specific translations in several languages

Saturday, December 8th, 2018

Translation is tricky, as you know if you've read any web page automatically converted by Google Translate; different tongues have different nuances that are hard to teach to an algorithm. Specifically, the way languages handle gender varies, and these discrepancies previously led to Google Translate to make assumptions and provide potentially inaccurate translations. Now, though, when gender is ambiguous in a translation input, the output will show both masculine and feminine terms, eliminating the guesswork.
