Help improve Google TranslateInternationally, it makes sense to do Cantonese before Shanghainese. Logistically as well since there's a much greater corpus of standardised Cantonese data. Still makes me sad not to see Hakka or Wu anywhere on their list.
We've heard your feedback about adding Cantonese to Google Translate. You can now improve Cantonese translations and help us get closer to our goal of adding it.
To get started, simply visit Google Translate Community and invite others to participate.
Thank you in advance,

A semi-academic linguistics blog about Sinotibetan, previously focused primarily on Wú, a Sinitic language spoken in the Yangtze Delta region. Topics now include historical linguistics, documentation, language rights, sociolinguistics and learning materials, as well as acting as the dev blog for Phonemica from time to time.
I'm a linguist based in Asia, working on documentation and historical development of Sinotibetan. In addition to academic research, I'm heavily involved in Phonemica, an organisation that promotes crowd-sourced preservation of local languages.
I'm currently in the field, so getting in touch isn't easy. However you can try to email me at the following address and I'll respond as soon as I'm able:email@example.com
