שלום לעולם!

I am pleased to announce that we just added Hebrew to the list of languages that we support. You can immediately use it in Bing Translator, in IE8, with the widget, with the messenger bot, inside Office and of course with the API.

I would like to congratulate our language quality and coverage team on the progress they have been making with new languages. Over the next few months you will see more languages added to the mix, and also continue to see quality improvements for existing languages. Feel free to leave a comment on this thread about any languages you would particularly like to see.

We have also had many of you contacting us about helping find data sources that can be useful to train the machine translation system on – we appreciate your help! Our email address is mtcont@microsoft.com. Do stay in touch!

  • Congratulations on the new language!

    I'd like to see support for Greek and Turkish in Bing Translator.

  • YES!!!!

    been waiting forever!

  • Great job guys!! While you're in the middle east, how about adding support for Persian/Farsi??

    Keep up the good work :)

  • Support for the Persian language would be fantastic!!!!

    Thanks a lot.

  • Very cool.

    I'm asking you to add Persian to your supported languages as it has a reasonable number of speakers in the world plus that there are many resources written in Persian that are invaluable to other speakers in the world. The number of Persian blogs/sites is very high (Iran, one of the Persian countries, is the third country in the world in regards to the number of blogs) and the translation of these resources can have a huge impact on the web.

  • At least because of recent media situation and censorship in Iran it is necessary to provide Persian (Farsi) translation as well. The world really needs it.

  • It would be more pleasant if you add Persian language as well. Thanks anyway.

  • I would like to see support for Greek like at Google.

  • danish and other east european languages

  • I would really like to see Welsh added.  I haven't really seen any translators with this available.

  • This is great news!

    Next?  How about making the widget narrower to fit the right sidebar in Ning Networks?

  • The Microsoft Translator doesn't translate the word "Microsoft" ;-)

  • I would very much like to see Norwegian added.
