According to Google, these new languages were added using Zero-Shot Machine Translation, which involves a machine learning model that only examines monolingual text. Without ever seeing an example, Zero-Shot Machine Translation learns to translate into another language. In an official blog post, Google stated, "While this technology is amazing, it isn't flawless."
