Mashable has launched Mashable India, a local edition of the popular website, in partnership with India.com. The company has a dedicated editorial team based in Mumbai and New Delhi for coverage from India, and will publish articles from Mashable’s international website. Approximately half of Mashable’s 50 million monthly unique visitors come from outside the US, with India being a top five market for the company.

Note that there is precedence to this partnership as Times Internet had partnered with a large number of International publishers, including Gizmodo, Lifehacker, Business Insider, HuffingtonPost India, Adage, ReadWrite, Remodelista, Techradar, IGN India, AskMen, Pursuitist, among others, to launch local editions.
