We just learned 5 new languages
Hi, everyone! This being my first post, I should write couple of words about myself. My name is Siim Teller, and I’m Localization Manager, dealing with all translation and localization projects. I also help Jaanus with ideas for this little site, and finally, I am the designated photographer in our Tallinn office.
And now to the topic at hand: Did you know that the Skype software speaks not only English, but 27 languages altogether? They range from big ones, like French, German, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, to the small and lesser-known. Estonian, Finnish and Danish are probably the smallest, if you look at number of speakers in the world.
I wanted to let everybody know that with the launch of new version 1.3 for Windows, we added five new languages. So if you feel more at home using Arabic, Bulgarian, Czech, Hungarian or Turkish, then go ahead, download the new version.
A very big thank you goes out to all the volunteers who have helped us getting so far! You’re all listed on the change log page).
Lastly, before Mac-users start bashing me: Yes, Skype for Mac currently only comes in Anglo flavor, but we’re working on it. Thanks for your patience.
