Blog post: 58 New Languages Just Landed! All languages now have AI-Explain Support!

This is a great day if you happen to be learning one of the 58 languages listed below, many of which are quite obscure and not well served by language learning apps. Readlang has added support for all of them, bringing total supported languages to 119, and what’s more all languages now come with Readlang’s Explain feature.

What does this mean?

If you’re learning any of these languages you now have a web-app allowing you to read and study using Readlang’s suite of learning tools:

  • A clean, distraction free reading interface
  • Ability to upload texts including entire novels
  • Comprehension aids including translation glosses shown above words or phrases which you click on in the text, and an English AI generated explanation in of what it means in context:

  • Different practice methods for you to reinforce the new vocabulary you have encountered:

  • A Chrome extension to read and import target language articles you find online

Here’s the list of languages which have just been added to Readlang:

Tatar, Albanian, Uzbek, Yoruba, Kazakh, Khmer, Kyrgyz, Amharic, Assamese, Aymara, Azerbaijani, Bambara, Corsican, Dhivehi, Ewe, Frisian, Guarani, Gujarati, Hausa, Igbo, Kannada, Kinyarwanda, Kurdish, Lao, Lingala, Luganda, Luxembourgish, Macedonian, Malagasy, Malay, Marathi, Nepali, Oromo, Pashto, Punjabi, Quechua, Samoan, Sanskrit, Sesotho, Shona, Sindhi, Somali, Sundanese, Tajik, Tamil, Telugu, Tigrinya, Tsonga, Turkmen, Uyghur, Xhosa, Zulu, Javanese, Nyanja / Chichewa, Odia / Oriya, Scots Gaelic, Sinhala / Sinhalese, Twi / Akan

That’s on top of the other 61 languages which Readlang already supported!

Please give it a try and let me know what you think!

Exciting! I’ll be starting Kazakh next January, so it’s great to see that language being supported now.

Currently, I use Readlang for Indonesian, and I also used it for Spanish a couple years ago. I’m using a different platform called VocabTracker for German and Korean. Unfortunately, neither RL nor VT supported Kazakh… until now!

Previously, my plan was to just pick a random language in the settings and import a Kazakh dictionary. I wouldn’t have automatic translations that way, but I’d still be able to copy+paste my dictionary’s definitions into the “Words” tab of e-reader to make them show up in my flashcards. That won’t be necessary now, though.

I’ll definitely be choosing Readlang over VocabTracker for my Kazakh studies when 2025 rolls around. Thanks for making the choice easier.

Thanks so much! The Chrome extension works great! Impressive. Is there something similar for Microsoft Edge?

There isn’t an extension specifically created for Microsoft Edge, but apparently you can install Chrome extensions on Edge: Add, turn off, or remove extensions in Microsoft Edge - Microsoft Support. I haven’t tried this myself so no guarantees that it’ll work. If you do try it please let me know how it goes!

Thanks so much! I tried it and got to the point where a window popped up: “Readlang Web Reader works on Microsoft Edge. Click “Get extension” to install.” I clicked “Get extension” but nothing happened.

That’s a shame. Thanks for trying!
