Breaking The Barrier: Twitter, Google+ Now Available In More Languages
While YouTube and Yahoo! have gone desi by adding Indian vernaculars, Google and Twitter have focused on international languages. Twitter has announced the addition of four new languages -- Arabic, Farsi, Hebrew and Urdu. These right-to-left languages have already been added to its Translation Center. "We first added these four languages to the Twitter Translation Center on January 25. Thirteen thousand volunteers around the globe immediately got to work, translating and localising Twitter.com into these languages in record time. Thanks to their contributions, Twitter is now available in right-to-left languages," the company's official blog announced. Twitter is now available in 28 different languages.
Google, on the other hand, has announced that its social networking arm Google+ is now available in 60 languages, up from the previous 44. The announcement has not specified the 16 new languages embraced by Google but it seems that search engine giant has added quite a few Indian languages like Bengali, Tamil and Malayalam.
