Apple is hiring Siri Annotation Analysts with fluency in a number of languages that are not currently supported by the voice assistant, suggesting that a major expansion of Siri’s availability is in the works.

Apple’s office in Cork, Ireland is hiring people fluent in Ukrainian, Hungarian, Slovak, Czech, Croatian, Greek, Flemish, Romanian, and Polish.

As described in job listings, Annotation Analysts that work for Apple listen to and transcribe snippets of ‌Siri‌ conversations to evaluate ‌Siri‌’s responses.

Apple does not support ‌Siri‌ in the languages that it is hiring for, which indicates ‌Siri‌ may be coming to new countries in the not too distant future. If ‌Siri‌ is gaining additional language support, those languages could also be added to the Translate app that was released in iOS 14.

‌Siri‌ is currently in more than 37 countries, with a list available on Apple’s website. The languages that work with the Translate app are more limited and include Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
