As per the official Google blog, the amount of online content in Indian regional languages account for only 1% of what is available in English.
In order to address this issue effectively, Google has launched a new project called Navlekha. Under this, a user is provided with a tool that uses AI to render any PDF containing Indian language content into editable text, which helps the publishers create mobile-friendly content.
The publishers will also be provided with the free web hosting with AdSense support to the regional publishers which will enable them to monetise their content immediately. The users will be receiving training and will also be given a page domain for the first three years.
Google has already started the project with participants from Delhi and the company hopes to expand it across the country from September 2018. Google has been in forefront to create projects that help Indian population at different levels. Navlekha is the latest addition to them.
