Twitter today launched the "Twitter Translation Center" that allows us to crowdsource translations from Twitter's users in order to more quickly launch Twitter in additional languages. Translators will be translating the product itself, not the Tweets. If you go to the settings page on Twitter.com and change your language, you'll see what we mean.
How does it work?
The new Translation Center allows any Twitter user to sign up, choose a language and begin translating immediately. Translators can now help localize twitter.com, mobile.twitter.com, Twitter for iPhone and iPad, Twitter for Android, Twitter Help and the Twitter Business Center. We also improved the Center's search functionality, added phrase tagging, created special translator profiles, enabled commenting on phrases and much more.
"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. We plan to introduce more languages throughout the year, such as Portuguese," stated Twitter.
