Currently, Siri is available with a few languages support including English (United States, United Kingdom and Australia dialects), German and French only. Apple has promised to extend this limit by adding some more languages support to Siri to let the users who know their regional languages only. Here, we have recently received a report revealing that Siri will be available in various language-versions in the next month. These languages are Chinese, Japanese and Russian.
The news is directly coming from a source known as DoNews, saying that an Engineer from Apple is working over the Chinese-language version of Siri, and it is to be launched the next month. Other than Chinese, Apple will also introduce the Japanese and Russian version of Siri. The source exactly says:
The Chinese tech site DoNews claims to have heard from an Apple engineer who’s working on the Chinese-language version of Siri, the clever voice assistant on the iPhone 4S. From this source, it claims that Siri will launch in Chinese next month, and is already undergoing internal testing this month.
The rumor also contends that the Chinese version will only support the standard Mandarin (aka: putonghua) Chinese, which would leave out Cantonese-speaking people, as well as some Taiwan folk who effectively speak in a different dialect. Plus, it alleges that Japanese and Russian will arrive next month as well.
So, the next month, Siri will be more capable with the additional languages support. However, source also says that the Chinese-version will only support the standard Mandarin Chinese and not the Cantonese dialect which is spoken by a larger part of population in China.
The support of Chinese, Japanese and Russian will fulfil half of the promise made by Apple to add the more languages support to Siri. As Apple mentioned the languages, including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian, and Spanish. Well, next month, get Siri accepting your voice commands even if you speak in Chinese, Japanese and Russian.
