AUSTRALIA has seen a huge boost in the popularity of Google Translator after a video from an Australian developer was posted to YouTube.
The video, which was posted on Monday, shows the software translating the word “Africa” into the Afrikaans language.
The app has a huge user base in South Africa, according to the company’s YouTube page.
A post on the Google Translators website said it had sold more than $100 million worth of products since its launch in October.
The video was first reported by TechCrunch and was later picked up by other news outlets.
Google has been pushing the technology to developers for a few months.
It has now launched a tool called Translation Assistant that allows developers to translate words in a variety of languages, including English, French, German, Dutch and Portuguese.
