On International Mother Language Day, Microsoft today announced support for email addresses in multiple Indian languages across most of our email apps and services including Office 365, Outlook 2016 client, Outlook.com, Outlook apps for Android and iOS, as well as Exchange Online, and Exchange Online Protection.

15 Indian languages include Hindi, Bodo, Dogri, Konkani, Maithili, Marathi, Nepali, Sindhi, Bengali, Gujarati, Manipuri, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu.

With this support, users can register local language email addresses in India from third-party EAI address providers such as XgenPlus through a simple online process. These email addresses are linked with Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) and can be registered in 15 local languages that support Unicode according to .IN Registry, which is the organization responsible for registering IDNs in India.

Speaking of this addition announcement Meetul Patel, COO – Microsoft India said,

“Ensuring that language is not a barrier to the adoption of technology is key for digital inclusion and growth. Making email addresses available in 15 languages is an exciting step to making modern communications and collaboration tools more accessible and easier to use for all – something we have been relentlessly working towards. We’re making technology use the language of people, and not requiring people to first learn the traditional language of technology,” says Meetul Patel, COO, Microsoft India.
