Pinterest introduces Hindi edition

Pinterest Logo

Social bookmarking site Pinterest has introduced a Hindi language version of its site, in a possible bid to reach out to the Hindi-speaking audience in the country or elsewhere (Hat tip – Sampad Swain).

With this, Pinterest now supports 26 languages, although Hindi is the only Indian language supported right now. One can change their language through their Pinterest profile settings page.

Following this, each menu option on the site is translated to Hindi, with an exception of the “Pin It” button which remains in English language. This language rollout is quite similar to what Facebook, Twitter and Google+ offers in the country.

Besides web, this Hindi rollout has also been extended to Pinterest’s Android app, provided the phone’s system language is set to Hindi, which is available since Android 4.3 and its mobile site.
