Twitter has spread its wings even further and extended this popular blogging service to five more languages as announced via its blog:
“Today, we’re increasing Twitter’s reach by launching in five new languages. Twitter is now available in Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Hindi, Tagalog and Malay. Last week’s announcement of 100 million active users worldwide shows Twitter’s current reach; with these new languages Twitter will now be more easily accessible to almost half a billion people around the world.”
With the addition of these 5 languages Twitter is now available in 17 languages. For translation purposes Twitter relies on army of volunteer translators (290,000 volunteers) who help in translating and moderating twitter.com, support pages, Twitter apps and much more.
Twitter is not content with just these 5 languages; it will further expand its translation Centre by adding six more languages i.e. Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, Polish and Hungarian.
This means good news for twitter fans globally who may have been feeling that language was a barrier in letting them take advantage of this blogging service.
