Furthermore, the new translated templates for Somali, Bangla, Croatian, Estonian, Swedish, Irish, Norwegian, Thai, Bulgarian, and Traditional Chinese have not yet been enabled due to the fact that we are rigorously fixing the incoming false positives with the limited data set we have – but enablement is expected, so look for the announcement in the coming weeks!
As always the updates are seamless and no action is required by our customers to receive these enhancements, but you will or may notice an improved multi language categorization experience! If you have any questions or comments please feel free to reach out to Netsweeper Technical Support.
