Gmail will soon be available in 71 languages as 13 extra languages are to be added. Google made the official announcement on Monday and highlighted that the users can switch the language they use, no matter where they live. That can help you learn new words in another language.
The languages that are offered now cover 94% of all the population on the internet. The brand new languages that will be added are: Afrikaans, Azerbaijani, Armenian, French (Canada), Chinese (Hong Kong), Georgian, Galician, Lao, Khmer, Nepali, Zulu, Sinhala and Mongolian.
In an official statement, Google declared that the company currently works with linguists in order to be sure that the style and tone of the extra languages will be suitable. The statement added:
“For example, both Hong Kong and Taiwan use traditional Chinese characters. However, you’ll notice that Gmail’s new Chinese (Hong Kong) language uses 收件箱 for “Inbox” instead of 收件匣, which is a word more common in Taiwan.”
