Posted by on Feb 22, 2012 in News | 0 comments

On Tuesday, February 21, 2012, Phong Yang visited with the Microsoft Research team responsible that helped develop the translator for Hmong. The team officially launch version one of the Hmong translator tool during the Mother of Language’s Day, an event celebrating under-represented languages. Hmong Daw “Hmong Dawb” is now one of 38 languages that are fully supported by Microsoft. Although the translator is still in its infant stage, there is no doubt that the translator will improve over time with contributions from the Hmong community. This is a historical event for the Hmong community and for the Hmong language. The community can help improve the translator by using it and providing feedback. Read more about this.
