Twenty is a nice round number – say ยินดีต้อนรับ (welcome) to our newest release!

We are pleased to announce that last week we added Czech (CSY), Danish (DAN), Greek (ELL), Swedish (SVE) and Thai (THA), taking our language count to a nice round 20. image

  34. Oleksa Shkatov says:


    What about Ukrainian language? Is it good to ignore language of the biggest European country and one of the biggest former USSR republics for many years?

  35. Andrii says:

    Thanks for Ukrainian language – this is my mother tongue.

  36. Alex says:

    A translation for my mother’s tongue, Ukrainian, would be much appreciated.

    Nowadays about 2 million Ukrainians live in the USA and Canada (I’m one of them). Many of them need to translate to/from Ukrainian. I use paper dictionaries and available online translation tools (they suck!) almost every day in my work here, in the U.S.

    Thanks a lot for considering to add Ukrainian language!

    thanks for this info. this amount of requests for Ukr. isn’t huge. really, it would be great and very useful to work with native language and it looks maybe a little bit distracting when it is omitted. so, please add my voice to all the rest: +1 for UA lang, could we have it added? 🙂

  44. Ruslan says:

    Add Ukrainian translation, please.

  45. Julia says:

  61. Sahha says:

  62. I think that the translation tool perhaps could be more interesting if the Latin language (latin tongue) is included. Thanks.

  63. Don says:

    Do you have a Hindi translator?

  64. Philip says:

    Vietnamese, please!

    * 73 million native speakers worldwide

    * 80+ million fluent speakers worldwide

    * about 13th-17th most used language worldwide

    * English is standard second language being taught in Vietnam to native speakers, so a good translator function would advance that

    * Google translate for Vietnamese is poor at best, improved translator greatly needed

  65. baumann eric says:

    bonjour j’aimerais traduire du kmer en direct car j’ai une amie cambodgienne … sinon je me sers souvent de tbog anglais et espagnol surtout…. merci

  66. JoRn says:

    I saw tht Thai Language was added since Sept last year. But untill now 99% of what I try to get is just translate English to English eventhough I choose to translate to Thai. And this is only word by word translation not mention about translate the whole webpage. That's unreadable.

    I would love to see real progress and that would be a  lot appreciated.

  67. Helen says:

    I would second the request for support for Vietnamese.
