Twitter adds support for Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi and Tamil, both for web and Android app.
Twitter’s Blog posted that the translations were partially carried out by the Twitter user community, via Twitter’s Translation Center. “Today we’ve made Twitter available in Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi and Tamil, and we’ve updated Twitter.com and the Android app to support these additional Indian languages,” as said in a statement. Besides these 4 languages twitter already supports Hindi and Bengali. So, now there are 6 Indian Languages supported by twitter.
In the Web interface you can choose between languages by the help of Settings menu in the profile tab, it’s simple to do and changes all the different text elements to your language of choice.
For Android users, all they have to do is change the language settings on their mobile devices to any of these four languages.
“These four languages were partially translated by a passionate community of Twitter users via the Translation Center — we couldn’t have done it without their help. By supporting Twitter in these languages, we are making our platform for live, public conversations more accessible to Indians all over the country,” the blogpost further adds.
