Cloud storage and file management provider Dropbox has announced on its blog that its service is now available in six more languages, namely Russian, Polish, Indonesian, Malaysian, and Traditional and Simplified Chinese (note that Dropbox is partially blocked in China).

The company says it took 553,800 word translations and 43,662 lines of code to make that happen. In other news, it took me 102 words to write this post.

It’s worth noting that Dropbox is available in the six new languages for Mac, PC, Linux, Android and on the Web, but for whatever reason not on iOS, or at least not yet.
