Pinterest, the service that helps you bookmark, organize and share inspiring images as curated pinboards, is now available in Hindi.

Under account settings, you should now be able to pick the new language option from the drop-down menu near the top of the page.

Pin captions, user-submitted comments and pinboard titles will continue to be shown in their original language, however.
