The computer software company Microsoft says it is working to make its products available in more African languages.

On Wednesday, the company introduced materials in Kiswahili, a language widely spoken in eastern Africa.

The company says the change will make it easier for millions of people in that area to use computers.

Thursday, a spokesman for Microsoft said the company is also working to make computer programs available in Zulu, Afrikaans, Hausa, Yoruba, Ibo, Wolof, Kinyarwanda, Amharic and some additional languages.
