Five New Languages, Added to Foursquare App

With the aim of expanding their mobile app, Foursquare decided to roll out five new languages.

Foursquare recently announced that they have kicked off support for additional five new languages: Bahasa Indonesian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Thai. These add-ons now gave their app a total of 11 languages.

The new languages are only available for the latest versions of foursquare app in iPhone, Android and Blackberry devices. Users could activate the languages just by updating their app and making sure that their phone’s default language is set to the preferred language. The official website of Foursquare also supports the new languages. To choose a desired language, users would just need to click the “English” button in the lower left corner of the page.

Meanwhile, a blog post from Foursquare discussed the success that their application received. “Since then, our in-country use has exploded, with tons of people, local businesses, and brands hopping on,” they stated.

This would be the second time for the company to release a new batch of languages. In the Mobile World Congress last February, co-founder and CEO -Dennis Crowley – said that the app would be translated into French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish.
