There were many interesting announcements made during the Google I/O 2022 keynote, but there was also a glaring error. The organization improperly displayed the Arabic when discussing Google Translate.

In a section on Translate, where Google introduced 24 more languages to the helpful tool, the Arabic language was incorrectly represented in Google’s I/O 2022 keynote, as pointed out by the people at TechCrunch .

In one of Google’s images displayed behind CEO Sundar Pichai, the company displayed Arabic lettering that actually read Sudanese but was written in an attempt to emulate a regional accent. Google should have included this as which would translate to Sudanese dialect or Sudanese slang in order to be accurate.

However, this was not the only mistake on the slide. Sam Ettinger on Twitter noted that this Google Translate presentation contains grammatical errors in multiple additional languages, with every non-Latin or non-Cyrillic language being at least slightly off.

Google has since corrected these mistakes in post-production, though, following the conclusion of the Google I/O event. The film is changed to reflect updated translations in the keynote recording, live on YouTube now . We can’t fully confirm whether or not these modifications are entirely perfect because we aren’t language specialists, but it appears Google has made an effort to fix its mistakes.

One of the Google staffers who worked on this section admitted the error and said, “We won’t make excuses.”
