Twitter goes multi-lingual

Twitter, the service that’s taken micro-blogging to a new level, wants to make its site more accessible for people by rending it into other languages.

At present, Twitter.com is only available in English or Japanese. Twitter co-founder Biz Stone however, said in a blog that they are planning versions of the website in other languages, beginning with French, German, Italian and Spanish.

“Volunteer translators” were invited to help with the translations of the website.

“We will distribute the translations to Twitter platform developers making it easier for them to offer multiple language support as well,” he wrote in the blog.

“We’re very excited that more people will be able to use Twitter in their native language!” he added.

There is still no word however, as to when the translated sites will go live.

Stay tuned! 🙂
