Microsoft Teams adds support for Ukrainian, Somali, and Zulu languages

by Kevin Okemwa

Microsoft strives to mitigate the needs of every student by trying to make classroom tools accessible to everyone. In an attempt to achieve this, through a recent update, Microsoft Teams has added support for Ukrainian, Somali, and Zulu languages, bringing the total number of supported languages to 105.

The addition of these languages is an elaborate measure employed by Microsoft to ensure that all the students from Ukraine get to have a smooth transition and do not miss out on their studies because of the language barrier.

With that said, the auto-detect speech detection for the Ukrainian language in Reading Progress has already reached general availability. Ukrainian students can now make use of the tool to translate whatever is being taught in class, which in return makes the learning and teaching process more effective and efficient.

Immersive Reader and Microsoft Translator are also part of the initiative that will help students progress with their studies as they provide support for the Ukrainian language and are also available in tools across Microsoft 365. Microsoft has also rolled out Read Aloud support for Somali and Zulu in Immersive Reader.
