New Feature: Global Name Translation™ Technology

We’re delighted to announce the launch of Global Name Translation™, a new technology unique to MyHeritage, to help break through those language barriers in the quest to uncover your past.

This innovation now makes it even easier to discover your global roots. The technology automatically translates names found in historical records and family trees from one language into another, at very high accuracy, generating all plausible translations, to facilitate matches between names in different languages. In addition, a manual search on MyHeritage's SuperSearch, will return results in other languages, automatically translated into the language of the query.

How can this benefit you? For example, perhaps your American family has Russian roots. Previously, you would have needed to search also in Russian to find all information available about your ancestors. Now you can search in English, and receive results in Russian, translated back into English for your convenience.

The technology covers given names and surnames and can tackle names previously encountered in the past, in addition to new names not seen before. It also utilizes extensive dictionaries built by MyHeritage to cover synonyms and nicknames.

MyHeritage: Hindi translation updated

Our Hindi translation has been updated.

We'd like to make a special, public thank you to our friend John G. M., a volunteer who recently took care of all the missing translations in Hindi, making it possible for millions of people to use MyHeritage to build and share their family history in this language.

This was a big task for which we are truly grateful.

We want to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers for their translation assistance, which helps millions of people around the world to discover more about their family history.

If you are interested in becoming a MyHeritage volunteer, please send us an email to translate@myheritage.com indicating the language or languages with which you'd like to help.

MyHeritage: Now in Latvian

Another language was added to MyHeritage.com this week. Your family site can now be displayed in 37 languages. As you’ll see in your language options, Latvian is now available.

With more than 92,500 Latvian users, we received many requests to add Latvian to MyHeritage.com.  We have great pleasure in finally being able to offer it as the first Baltic language in our list. 

It should prove useful for users in both Latvia and Lithuania, making it a little bit easier to connect on MyHeritage.com. Continue reading "MyHeritage: Now in Latvian" »
