Google said it had unveiled a new set of products and features for Indian languages to better serve the needs of Indians who were coming online rapidly.

It said Google Translate will use a new ‘neural machine translation technology’ to translate between English and nine widely-used Indian languages, including Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, Telugu, Hindi, Punjabi, Bengali, Marathi and Gujarati.

Reason behind the move
To bring down barriers that stop Indian language users from getting more out of the Internet and helping the industry to solve the needs of a billion Indians.
