All these five languages are in alpha status so the translation may not be 100 accurate. As mentioned in the official Google blog “You can expect translations for these new alpha languages to be less fluent and include many more untranslated words than some of our more mature languages—like Spanish or Chinese—which have much more of the web content that powers our statistical machine translation approach. Despite these challenges, we release alpha languages when we believe that they help people better access the multilingual web.”
Also since these languages each have their own unique scripts, Google has enabled a transliterated input method for those of you without Indian language keyboards. See the English to Tamil translation and English to Telugu translation in action below.
You can download the fonts for all these languages as mentioned (Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Gujarati and Kannada.) in the official Google Blog.
