Aimed at helping Bengali speakers discover new information quickly, Google today announced the introduction of Knowledge Graph in Bengali language on Google Search. In addition, Google Search will now also support spell correction for Bengali queries improving the Search experience for the Bengali speakers around the world.

The Knowledge Graph enables users to search for things, people or places that Google knows about — landmarks, celebrities, cities, sports teams, buildings, geographical features, movies, celestial objects, works of art and more. The feature allows users to get straight to the answer instead of scrolling through webpages.

Starting today, when a user searches for cricket legend Sourav Ganguly in Bengali, Google Search will display things instead of strings – and instantly get information that’s relevant to the query such as Sourav’s date of birth, his number as an active cricket player, or links to his profile on social media in Bengali.

To help users get answers even when they misspell a word, Google Search will now support spell correction for Bengali queries, suggesting similar queries whenever a typo made its way into users search query.

Google has already begun to gradually roll-out the Knowledge Graph in Bengali and will be made available to users around the world. Today’s update will make it easier for the over 200 million Bengali speakers to search for appropriate information.

Google Knowledge Graph is currently available in 41 languages, maps out how more than 1 billion things in the real world are connected, and over 70 billion facts about them. Google claims that it is tuned based on what people search for, and what Google finds out on the web, improving results over time.
