Twitter turns to crowdsourcing for Indonesian, Russian and Turkish. More to come.

Twitter turns to crowdsourcing for Indonesian, Russian and Turkish. More to come.

With Twitter already having been translated into 7 languates officially, the company is looking to extend its reach. As CEO Dick Costolo announced from The MWC keynote today, Twitter’s goal is to be available on every platform. In order to reach that goal, the company needs translation into even more languages.

According to a post on the Twitter blog, the Twitter Translation Center should help accomplish that feat.

We currently offer Twitter in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish. These languages are all included in the Translation Center so translators can continue to help us with updates. We’ve also added Indonesian, Russian and Turkish to the Translation Center, as Twitter will be translated to those languages next.

The Translation Center appears to be a direct result of feedback received from Twitter’s translation volunteers thus far. Integrating the features that were most requested, it allows any user to sign up and start translating. Oh, you’ll also want to follow @translator on Twitter to keep up with the latest information.
