    Google had rolled out a new machine learning algorithm to Google Translate earlier in March. And according to the tech giant, the new technique improved the quality of translation. Thus Google might be expanding to other languages based on that.

    Google has also added a machine learning-powered translation to its Chrome browser's built-in Translate functionality. Basically, Chrome will now automatically translate the languages using the new neural network-assisted technique. Commenting on this aspect Google has stated, "This means higher quality translations of everything from song lyrics to news articles to cricket discussions."

According to Digitaltrends, more than 11 new languages will be supported including Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Marathi, Tamil, Urdu, and Gujarati.

    And there is more. Google is also integrating a Hindi dictionary feature in the Google Search app. Google has worked with Oxford University Press to bring in the Rajpal & Sons dictionary online with full support for transliteration. Meaning, if you type a term in Google Search, you'll see the dictionary definition and meanings of the term, including English translations.
