Posted February 09, 2018 07:14:46 Google is set to roll out a new feature for translators, dubbed “Sanskrit Translation”, which allows users to read or write in Sanskrit and other languages on its platform.
Google is working on the new feature in partnership with Sanskriti, a startup that aims to bring Sanskrit translation to more languages, according to a post on Google’s website.
According to the post, Sanskriti is working with a large number of translation partners including Google Translator, Google India, and a handful of other publishers, who are collaborating on the project.
“Sankrit Translation is Google’s effort to bring the richness of Sanskrit to many languages,” the post reads.
“Sanskritis is a language spoken in several countries and languages, including many that are not spoken in India,” it adds.
“To translate Sanskrit to other languages, we are bringing Sanskriti to you, as a digital translation app that you can download from Google Play.”
The new feature will also help Google translate articles for its news aggregator, News Radar.
Google has also partnered with a number of publishers to make this feature available.
“We are working with publishers on the translation of Sanskrit, which will be rolled out later this year,” the Google blog reads.
