    But languages that are "under-represented" on the internet like Bengali, Telugu and Tamil could use a little help, a company statement said. With more input from the community, Google Translate can boost the translation of these languages, making content on the internet more accessible to millions of people.

    "By putting Google's tools in the hands of our Indian users, we believe we can help build a web that works for millions around the world," said Sapna Chadha, country marketing manager, Google India.

    "The Jaipur Literature Festival brings together people who are passionate about Indian languages and culture, so we can't think of a better place to invite people to contribute to the Translate Community and experience Indian heritage online," she added.
