Google Translate has requested help from African translators as it aims to include more of the continent’s languages in its web-based translation services.
Translators for Hausa, Igbo, Somali, Yoruba and Zulu were advertised for on the Google Blog earlier this week.
“Hello Africa, we need your help with evaluating translation quality for some of our ‘promising’ African languages,” the post stated.
Applicants are requested to visit supplied links and rate provided translations between poor and excellent to assist automated translation standards.
HumanIPO reported in June Google had announced the launch of African languages Swahili, Afrikaans and Zulu on Google Drive. Docs, Sheets, Slides and Forms are available in the new languages on both web and mobile based applications.
