Google launches Arabic version of Blogger

Google’s Blogger service, familiar to a myriad of bloggers around the world, has just launched support for the Arabic language.

“We’re really excited to be launching Blogger in Arabic,” said Siobhan Quinn, Product Manager at Google. “Blogger’s always been about allowing people to communicate, connect with each other, and share ideas in an easily accessible way; it’s great to bring this platform to this community.”

Promises of the service improving throughout the coming year.

Not much else to say, except that it’s good to see Western companies continuing to expand their services beyond the standard English defaults.

    Thanks for this update. Google is wise to support Arabic, particularly considering the booming Arab-American population here in the States. My company has translated several U.S. websites into Arabic for our clients, allowing them to cater to their markets’ needs. Feel free to visit our site to learn more about our service (and to view the site in Arabic, using the “Language Chooser” at the top of the home page).

    It is good to see the internationalism of blogging fulfill the idea of an international tool, space, and form of discussion. Let this be a step to better communication in the future.

    Good to see that more resources are made available in Arabic. Hopefully this will create an explosion in the number of Arabic blogs online.
