Google are extending their influence across the populous Indian Subcontinent, with an expansion of Google Translate.

The popular translation tool is, from today, incorporating Bengali, Gujarati, Tamil and Telugu- languages spoken by more than half a billion people.

The latest addition adds to a further 11 languages added since 2009, bringing to 63 the total number of languages Google’s pioneering tool can translate.

Differences in the alphabets in the Indian languages will, Google admit, make the translation process more difficult and the service will not have the same fluency as their more established languages like Spanish.
