After adding support for 13 new African languages back in March, Microsoft has announced the addition of yet another language to its Microsoft Translator, Lower Sorbian. It’s a West Slavic minority language commonly used in eastern Germany in the historical province of Lower Lusatia.

Lower Sorbian brings the total number of languages supported by Microsoft’s Translator app to 129. This means that you can now access text translations in Lower Sorbian across  Microsoft Translator apps, Office, and Translator for Bing.

According to the head of the WITAJ Department in Lower Lusatia, Bernd Melcher:

Now we can create much-needed textbooks, study materials, and other publications at a larger scale. And our students can use their mobile devices for quick look-up of words and even save the translations – very motivating!”
