‘Google in Your Language’ – African language translation

Last month, the Google Africa team announced plans to expand the number of African languages supported by Google search and applications.  The project is called Google in Your Language and it invites interested universities and community volunteers to contribute to Google's translation tools for African languages.  Participants will attend engaging translation workshops where they will expand Google's translation capabilities under the guidance of language moderators.  If the program is successful, Google search may soon be available to many new African users in a variety of different languages.
