The list of 33 recently added offline languages includes Basque, Cebuano, Chichewa, Corsican, Frisian, Hausa, Hawaiian, Hmong, Igbo, Javanese, Khmer, Kinyarwanda, Kurdish, Lao, Latin, Luxembourgish, Malagasy, Maori, Myanmar (Burmese), Oriya/ Odia, Samoan, Scots Gaelic, Sesotho, Shona, Sindhi, Sundanese, Tatar, Turkmen, Uyghur, Xhosa, Yiddish, Yoruba, and Zulu.
To download an offline language, open the Google Translate app and tap the download button next to the language you want to download.
