Google Translate says it can now handle more than 100 languages after 13 new ones were introduced

Scots Gaelic, spoken by around 57,000 people, has been added along with the likes of Hawaiian, Samoan and Pashto.

The service was launched in 2006 with translations initially between English and Arabic, Chinese and Russian.

Google says the 13 new additions will help another 120 million people communicate with the rest of the world online.

The announcement about the new languages was made on the Google Translate blog, which also explains how they choose new ones to add to the database
