Twitter is now available in Filipino, including both Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Hindi and Malay. These new choices join the 12 other languages that Twitter had already supported.
Last week, Twitter announced that they have now 100 million active users worldwide, and with these new languages Twitter will now be more easily accessible to almost half a billion people around the world.
Twitter uses a crowd-sourced translation that uses 290,000 volunteers to translate Twitter.com as well as support pages and Twitter apps. Twitter says that it will be adding more languages to its Translation Center soon including Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, Polish and Hungarian.
You can change your language preference for Twitter by going to your Settings page at Twitter.com after logging in and selecting a language there. Once you hit save all of the portions of Twitter that aren’t Tweets should be more familiar to you.
