I'm studying Navajo. There will never be an app for that.

Google Translate Feb 18, 2016

is not intended for studying languages, but for translating. To be included into the GT scope, a language, as I understand, must be more or less widely present in the Internet. If Navajo is such a language, I guess, it is only a matter of time.

Just to be pedantic Feb 21, 2016

"So what goes into adding a new language? Beyond the basic criteria that it must be a written language, we also need a significant amount of translations in the new language to be available on the web."

Apparently translation is an uncountable noun now. Don't worry, folks, your translations is in good hands!

And who needs a criterion when you've got a criteria?

Awful.
