    Google looks to boost Translate in Africa with Somali, Zulu and other languages

    Google Africa is asking volunteers to judge the quality of beta translations for African languages Hausa, Igbo, Somali, Yoruba and Zulu. That means it's likely only a matter of time before they're added to the 71 current Google Translate lingos. Users on a Google+ page who speak one of the languages were asked to rate the translation of passages to and from English on a scale of 'poor' to 'excellent.' While it still seems a bit buggy, it looks to be a great start -- though users in isolated areas might need to wait for Facebook's internet.org initiative.
