Recently, a study conducted by the tech major in collaboration with KPMG India revealed that 234 million Indian language users are now online, as against 175 million users browsing in English.

Rajan Anandan, Vice President, India and South East Asia, Google said, "Google wants to extend the internet for every Indian".

Google Translate will use Google's new Neural Machine Translation technology to translate between English and widely used nine Indian languages which includes Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati, Punjabi, Malayalam and Kannada.

Neural translation which was introduced by the search giant in May previous year, translates full sentences at a time instead of the old phrase-based system that translated pieces of a sentence.

On the behavioural aspects, the report highlighted that 99% of Indian language users access internet through their mobile devices.

While GNMT had rolled out to major languages like Chinese, Spanish and others already, Indian languages on Google Translate were still translated to English using the old, less accurate Phrase-based translations. The number of English-speaking Internet users is expected to grow at a mere 3 per cent to touch 199 million during the same time. As the new technique has been claimed to be far superior to earlier one, the change is likely to make Web more user-friendly for people in India.

Bill O'Reilly to return with new podcast episode Monday
Tucker Carlson Tonight's first show occupying O'Reilly Factor's usual time slot featured an interview with Caitlyn Jenner. Still, he said he wouldn't blame Fox News for the decision. "He set a high bar and I'm going to do my best to meet it".

The neural machine translation is available in Chrome and Maps to make the translation process seamless and refined.

He added that 300 million Indians access internet on smartphones.

Gboard will feature two keyboard layouts for each of these languages - one in the native language script and one with QWERTY layout with transliteration support. After introducing support for machine-learning based translation for Hindi last month, the search giant has now extended its neural machine translation to 9 more Indian languages.

The new Gboard comes with a feature that makes it easy to resize and reposition the keyboard according to a user's need.

Bringing dictionary functionality on Google search for users, Google will now offer Hindi dictionary results from Rajpal & Sons dictionary in collaboration with the Oxford University Press. The users can now search words, meanings and even emojis in local language.
