These languages are important for Google, and its users, as they include a non-Roman character set that is hard to use on a standard keyboard layout. The latest update to Translate includes a beef-up of Google Translate's "camera input" abilities, which now reads languages that you capture from physical objects with your smartphone's camera, to Afrikaans, Greek, Hebrew and Serbian.
