Is your national language among Five new languages Twitter added Today

Today, Twitter increased its reach by launching in five new languages. Twitter is now available in Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Hindi, Filipino 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.

Twitter now fully supports 17 languages. For its crowd-sourced translation process, Twitter relies on a dedicated community of volunteer translators to both translate and moderate, support pages, Twitter apps and more. There are 290,000 (and counting) volunteer translators.

Twitter plans to add more languages to the Translation Center for crowd-sourced translation. Next, Twitter plans to add Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, Polish and Hungarian. --------
