Among the new languages are Quechua, used by around 10 million people in Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and other countries in the area; Guaraní, which is spoken by nearly seven million users in Paraguay and Bolivia, Argentina and Brazil; and Aymara, used by nearly two million people in Bolivia, Chile and Peru.
The news was well received by referents and members of indigenous peoples, who fight to preserve their history and make themselves visible in communication spaces dominated by majority languages.
The tool will thus have 133 languages, among which will also be Mizo, used by around 800,000 people in the extreme northeast of India, and Lingala, used by more than 45 million people in Central Africa, as announced on Wednesday by the internet giant at “Google I/O,” its annual developer conference.
