Facebook now offered in 55 languages

Popular social networking site Facebook is now available in 55 different languages:

Our goal is to support Facebook in the native language of all our users and people who want to use the site. In this regard, we’ve received requests from thousands of people who want to help translate Facebook into languages beyond the sixteen released languages and the eight that are in the process of being translated.

Based on this feedback, we opened 55 new languages this week for translation by the community. Now native speakers can use our Translations application to translate Facebook into additional Asian languages (Malaysian, Vietnamese), African dialects (Zulu, Xhosa), regional varieties (British English, Canadian French) and even rarely spoken languages, such as Latin and Esperanto.

I haven’t used Latin since my undergraduate education ended – perhaps now I can try using Facebook with Latin!

  • I think it’s pretty cool that they’re trying to make Facebook available to may different types of people. It’s a good way to spread Western thought to other countries and make different connections. It’s also a good way to practice a foreign language!
