Nowadays, everyone has an account, or at least knows what Twitter is all about. This microblogging site was created and launched in 2006, and has slowly been gaining popularity, today reaching more than a hundred million users worldwide. How can you reach this huge audience? With specialist business translation services.

Recently, the company announced an expansion of the list of languages ​​available to ‘tweet’ in. Specifically, the additional languages ​​are: Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Hindi, Malay and Tagalog. Therefore, using specialist business translation services can significantly increase your online readership.

Malay is spoken mainly in Southeast Asia, being the official language of Malaysia, Brunei and one of the four official languages ​​of Singapore. Tagalog is spoken in various regions of Asia like the Philippines, in Oceania (New Zealand and Australia), and some regions of Canada and the United States. The Indian community can also ‘tweet’ in Hindi, one of the two official languages ​​of India, along with English. With these new additions, Twitter will be available in 17 languages, and, as announced by the company, it will soon support another six new languages: Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, Polish and Hungarian. This ever increasing pool of languages represents a huge online community, which you can tap into by using specialist business translation services.

Like many other online services, Twitter is supported by a team of around 290,000 volunteer translators, who translate and moderate the network in different languages. If you are interested in working on launching additional languages, you can join the Twitter Translation Centre at twitter.com/translate, which allows any user to register, choose a language and start translating.

Of course, this is not the only avenue as far as reaching a global audience is concerned. Do you have any other suggestions?
