Twitter is currently available only in English and Japanese. The company is seeking for translators in order to roll out support for French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
These languages are commonly referred to using the acronym FIGS and are often the starting point for services like Twitter when its time for more language support.
Starting today,Twitter is offering a simple tool for people with experience in other languages to suggest translations for the Twitter web site.
Twitter is inviting a small group of people to become volunteer translators at first. As more folks volunteer, the translation suggestions should accumulate faster and Twitter will have enough material to respond by making Twitter available not only in English and Japanese but also French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
