Even More Languages

Based on your feedback we’ve expanded the languages you can select in the list to a grand total of 119, so hopefully your choice is now available. Of course if it’s not, just let us know in the comments here (the ISO code and the language natively) and we’ll add it to the list.

The new features based on the language information is coming soon! Thank you to the thousands of you who have already started classifying your blogs. Curious what the top languages are? Here are the top 5 non-English choices:

  1. Chinese
  2. Spanish
  3. German
  4. Italian
  5. Portuguese

We’ll be using this data to prioritize services for different languages so encourage your friends to sign up if they speak the same language as you.

    Great! I’m getting some of my Chinese co-workers to sign up as soon as the interface is language ready. Read English is still very strenuous for many.

    They need to be liberated from feature oppression!

    Hmm….
    I can enter English, Japanese, and Chinese without specifying any language.

    Perhaps if I specify a language my wordpress controls would be in that language?

    Hi all,

    To have all these languages is blazing hot, yet I doubt there will be much BLOG’s using them. The majority of Cybernauts still speaks English; and that is good so ;-)

    Honestly, WP is a wonderful thing and already gives a million choices to the Admin, sometimes only available in one of the nightly’s. I had recently made that expierence myself trying to import external data. Thanks again, lad. It worked perfectly!

    Back to the lang stuff: Spanish is nice, but there are at least a dozen different types of Spanish, just like with en-uk, en-us, etc. I am currently working in Mexico and have come to learn, that es-es is not quite es-mx. As for that, my question would be a:) are there any localized sub-langs planned, and b:) can the user interface be switched to one language, while the admins interface remains at plain English?

    Brazilian people show to the world that is in the web deeply, we are the number one in orkut. Our language are so important to the wordpress. Mainly that just one state in our country is bigger than so many countries in Europe and Asia. We are continental.
    So I think I gave you so many reasons to Brazil have its language in wordpress.
