Mongolian to be included in “Google Translate”

By M.ZOLJARGAL

The Speaker of Parliament, Z.Enkhbold, has initiated a campaign to include the Mongolian language in the online “Google Translate” service. This follows a survey recently conducted by Z.Enkhbold via his own Twitter page.
Google Translate provides instant and free online translation of text. There is much public support for including the Mongolian language in Google Translate as it would enable more citizens of this country to read news that is published in other languages, including in English, Russian and Japanese.
Z.Enkhbold met with delegates of the information technology sector on January 16 to discuss how to ensure the Mongolian language can be included in the Google Translate service as quickly as possible. The meeting began with Z.Enkhbold reading an e-mail from Battulga, a Mongolian who works in Google’s Search Engine sector. The email expressed Battulga’s support for the Speaker of Parliament’s initiative and introduced possibilities and conditions relating to the initiative. He noted, for example, that it would be necessary to first establish a database containing all Mongolian words.
The meeting delegates proposed to use Bolor-toli.com as the database and agreed that when the Google Translate service becomes available in Mongolian they would support the translation of news pieces uploaded on the News.mn website. The Chief of the Information and Communication Technology and Post Authority of Mongolia, T.Jadambaa, pledged to lead the implementation of the Speaker of Parliament’s initiative. He said he will hold another meeting with information technology professionals next week and would form a working group to manage the matter.
