Six Steps Closer to Reaching Every Person on the Planet

Since we launched our Translation Center last year, we’ve received thousands of language requests. Currently the most requested languages are Catalan, Afrikaans, Ukrainian, Greek, Czech and Basque. Today we’re excited to announce that we’re opening up the Twitter Translation Center for those six languages.

Today, Twitter is available in 28 languages, thanks in large part to our community of nearly half a million translators around the world. We’re grateful for the work you’ve done thus far, and for the enthusiasm we’ve seen about continuing to add new languages -- even coming from the FC Barcelona football team. While this batch represents the most requested languages, we know there are still many more to tackle. To request your language, please submit your interest to translate at http://translate.twttr.com/lang_request.

If you speak Catalan, Afrikaans, Ukrainian, Greek, Czech, or Basque and would like to join our efforts to make Twitter available to users in one of those languages, please visit the Translation Center.

And to each of you helping us translate these new languages: Gràcies, dankie, спасибі, Ευχαριστώ, děkuji, and eskerrik asko!
