A great news from Google Map is heading the southern part of India. Google has launched its new algorithm for regional languages. So far you would have seen Google Maps detecting areas and displaying them in one common language. People in regional areas who are not familiar with languages other than their regional languages find them difficult to gather information.

Understanding the inabilities of the regional crowd Google Maps have come up with one of the latest and an interesting factor in it. It is the Neural Machine Translation technology.

Neural Machine Translation Technology Now in India’s Regional Languages:

The Neural Machine Translation Technology is capable of translating up to nine regional languages. The languages are as follows,

  • Tamil
  • Telugu
  • Gujarati
  • Punjabi
  • Malayalam
  • Kannada
  • Hindi
  • Bengali
  • Marathi

The added advantage of Neural Machine Translation is, it can convert the complete information into the required regional language.

Initially, It was the application that could convert the information available on the map . But the new innovative technology has now become more flexible that even a layman can understand the information in his own regional language.

Earlier the technology reached a few parts of the regional districts of India. As of 21st July 2017, the technology was effective to the southern part of India which included Chennai and its surrounding states.
