Sanskrit is most requested language in Google Translate

According to a report by Economic Times, Isaac Caswell, senior computer programmer at Google Research, said, “Sanskrit is the number one, most requested language in Google Translate, and we are finally adding it”. In an Interview he also said,   ”We are adding the first languages from northeast India, which is another rather underrepresented place.” He also added, “We are working on some other features as well, but they are not yet supported for all these languages. We are trying to understand (the problems) better, and hopefully, our model will be able to support this.

Will shift to a more colloquial rather than an old-fashioned or stilted kind of thing. But we know there are other issues we’re trying to get our fingers closer on.” The recently added languages ​​are the first to be added to Google Translate using zero-shot machine translation technology. In this technique, the machine learning model sees only monolingual text. It learns to translate into another language without seeing examples.

Isaac Caswell said about this, “While this innovation is great, it is not completely perfect. Also, we’ll continue to work on these models to deliver a similar experience you’re used to with a Spanish or German translation, for example.”

According to a report by India Today, around 20000 people use Sanskrit in India. However, being the source of most languages ​​in the Indo-European category, it is important to bring Sanskrit to the Google Translate platform.
