Twitter Has Started Chattering Greek, Czech and Basque
Twitter now gives an opportunity to use social microblogging service in Greek, Czech and Basque languages.
Earlier, at the beginning of July, we wrote about Twitter’s availability in Catalan and Ukrainian languages. It is worth reminding that in May social microblogging service started translating its interface for six languages, such as Catalan, Ukrainian, Greek, Czech, Basque and Afrikaans. All languages were chosen according to the users’ wishes. The first languages to become available were Catalan and Ukrainian ones.
All these translations were made by Twitter Translation center, consisting of volunteers from countries all over the world. Social microblogging service is very grateful to those who have participated in the translations. Its representatives have written on its official blog,
“We’d like to thank you, our dedicated translators, who made this launch happen by requesting and supporting Twitter in your language. You are the ones who help us get closer to making Twitter available around the world.”
Since 2009, Twitter has been using this very pattern and, you know, very successfully. Only Afrikaans is left from that list to become available.
It is also worth reminding that this year in March Twitter service gladdened greatly its Arabic, Hebrew, Farsi, and Urdu users that can now take advantage of the service in their right-to-left native languages. Clearly, Twitter microblogging service is currently available in 33 different languages and this is not the limit. We will be keeping you informed.
