Microsoft has expanded access to another language for its Microsoft Translator apps, along with the many other apps and services that use the company's translation features. The Kiswahili language can now be used, in text form, by Microsoft Translator, and become the first African language to be supported by the company.
Kiswahili is better known as Swahili by some people. Microsoft says:
"Kiswahili is spoken by up to 150 million people throughout eastern Africa including Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Mozambique and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. With the new translation system, governments in the region will be able to make documents and information available at virtually no cost, non-governmental organizations will be able to quickly communicate with locals, and most importantly, people will be able to communicate back and forth across borders for both business and personal purposes."
Microsoft worked with the non-profit group Translators without Borders to add support for Kiswahili. It's also available as part of the recent real-time translator features added to Microsoft's Skype for Windows desktop app.
