Twitter, in your language

Friday, 6 January 2012

More than 400,000 volunteers have contributed to our Translation Center, which takes a crowd-sourced approach to making Twitter available in new languages. In fact, thanks to these passionate people all over the world, Twitter is offered in 21 languages. We’ve recently introduced it in Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Polish — and today, we launch in Swedish.

As the number of volunteer translators grows, we’ll explore new ways to empower users to translate and localize Twitter for even more communities. Expect to see further improvements to the Translation Center in the coming year, including new translation tools and more opportunities to help make Twitter accessible to every person on the planet.

If you’d like to get involved, visit and follow @translator for the latest updates about these efforts. If you’d like to read Twitter in a different language, you can change your language setting.
