How do I include/develop a new language (Tamil) in google chrome?
Re: tamil translation Meily 12/9/08 4:44 AM
Did you find out how to do this? I'm interesting in including new language (belarussian) too. And I could not find the answer on this site. :-(

Among the Indian language versions, is Google Chrome also being targetted only for Hindi-knowing people only? Why is there no Tamil option?
Re: tamil translation tommygator 2/28/09 7:30 AM
I think it does support them. perhaps you need to adjust a couple settings.
First, go to tools (the wrench) click it, then OPTIONS
Click minor tweaks tab then change font and language button
then language tab to add TAMIL or BELARUSIAN to your languages setting
now, go to the prefered website that you couldn't read and right click the web page and view page source
using 'find in page' and search for font or font-family and see what tamil or belarusian font they are using.
search the internet for the proper <font-name>.TTF file and add it to your windows/font folder
let me know if that helped you

Thank you, tommygator. But I want to develop or include belarusian language in Google Chrome interface. Please see screen shot  Of course, it is impossible to support all languages in this browser interface, but I think that there exists some algorithm how to create translation of Google Chrome interface in belarusian by myself. Maybe edit some resources files. I do not know.

i want know this
Re: tamil translation agl 3/11/09 10:40 AM
I'm afraid that there is little support for user contributed translations at this time. The translations are kept in chrome/app/resources/generated_resources_XX.xtb, which are UTF-8 XML files that one could duplicate and translate by hand. One would then have to rebuild Chrome from source.
Re: tamil translation Mayooresan 6/11/09 2:09 AM
so it means Google thinks only Hindi is the language of South Asia, and it doesn't have to support other languages???
way to go!

If Google Chrome doesn't support your language, report that bug here and the Translation Team will deal with it.
Re: tamil translation satkum 2/8/10 10:52 PM
Pls try to include tamil as another option, because we often use google translating options to read some information from other language website and whenever i turn on google translate. We feel disappointed seeing that tamil is not included in it ( which has been a classical language status )
  Hope so i can use tamil as another translate option as soon as possible.
               Thank you

Hi everyone, 

I am the tech lead on Google Translate frontend development, and recently this thread was brought to my attention.

Just about every day we hear from a user, or potential user, asking us when or if we'll support translations to/from language X (insert whatever language you like here, e.g., Tamil).

While we're quite proud that we already support 58 of the worlds languages, there are still many more languages that we would love to enable for our users. 

We're constantly working hard to bring new languages up to our quality standards so that we can make them available to our users, but unfortunately launching a new language is hard. Every language that we support requires very large amounts of training data and significant amounts of engineering work to make available to you, our users. 

For some general information about how our system works, check out

So if we don't support your language yet, rest assured, we're working on it. The limiting factor is almost always training data. What we need is large amounts of parallel data, that is, large amounts of documents or sentences that have already been translated between the new language and one of our supported languages. 

The best way you can help is by contributing Translation Memories (TMs) or glossaries by uploading them to Google Translator Toolkit ( For details on how to contribute, see the following: 

Uploading a Translation Memory: 

Uploading a Glossary: 

If you don't have existing TMs or glossaries to upload, but are multilingual and still want to help, you can contribute by using the 
Translator Toolkit to translate documents into or from the new language you hope we'll support and allowing us to use the data you create to train our systems. 

Many thanks everyone.

Thank you so much, I was waiting for more than 2 years for this..........& will do whatever to achieve this task!
Thanks again! :)

Re: tamil translation Blair (Googler) 3/10/11 11:25 AM

There seem to be two issues here: using the Chrome browser in Tamil, and requesting support for Tamil in Google Translate.

To use Google Chrome in Tamil, use the following steps:

1. Copy and paste the following into your address bar and hit enter: chrome://settings/language
2. Click "Add"
3. Select "Tamil" from the drop-down and click "OK"
4. Select "Tamil" from the list and click "Display Google Chrome in this language"
5. Click "Restart"

Regarding Tamil in Google Translate, see Josh's post above.

Please check this website. EUDICT.COM. Tamil is the only Indian language listed. EUDICT is better than Google translate. Even technical words are found in EUDICT website.
