Google Starts Rolling Out Gender Specific Translation
San Francisco: In a bid to reduce gender biases in its translation service, Google has started rolling out a feature that provides feminine and masculine translations for some gender-neutral words on the Google Translate website.
The feature is currently available only for a few languages, although Google plans to bring it to more languages soon. So one can now translate single words from English to languages like French, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish.
As of now, translations for short phrases and sentences that mention a person in a gender-neutral way is available for the English and Turkish language pair. Google Translate learns from hundreds of millions of already-translated examples from the web. (IANS)
