Twitter Translation Centre now in six more languages, including Greek and Czech

Twitter the micro-blogging giant has increased the language base with six new languages: Catalan, Afrikaans, Ukrainian, Greek, Czech and Basque. These are the most requested languages!

In February 2011, Twitter released Translation Centre in order to make Twitter more accessible for people around the world. Currently, Twitter is crowdsourcing translators for all of them, so want to be a translator? Now Twitter is bringing in total to 28 languages. They got around nearly half a million translators around the world!

From Twitter:

‘’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. While this batch represents the most requested languages, we know there are still many more to tackle’’
