Microsoft Readies More Products in African Languages

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.
