Launch of Medical Wikipedia in 9th language – Odia (India)

We have just launched the 9th language version of our offline medical apps. This version is in Odia a language in Eastern India spoken by around 40 million people. You can download it from Google play here

Launching this app was more complicated than most as the Google play store does not support the Odia language as an option. We had to thus label it as being in English even though it is not. Many of the articles within this collection are additionally the only content avaliable online in this language.

Many thanks to Dr. Subas Chandra Rout who single handedly translated nearly 500 articles to make this collection a possibility.
