US-based start-up Pinterest has announced that users in the Philippines can access a translated version of the website and Android apps in Filipino language.
?We?re excited to help Pinterest fans explore the things they love to do in Filipino,? said Matt Crystal, head of international at Pinterest.
?Pinterest Philippines already has an active pinning community with our most popular categories including fashion, travel, crafts, food and home d?cor. Today?s localization is a first step toward helping pinners discover their interests and hobbies in an entirely new way.?
Last year, Pinterest launched in more than 20 languages and will continue with more translations in 2014.
?Global growth is a top priority for us because as more people join the site, the more interests will be represented, and the better the service becomes for Pinners,? Crystal said.
People use Pinterest to create wish lists, plan decor for their home, get inspired about places to visit, discover new recipes, and more. On Pinterest, people can follow ?Pinners? with similar interests to get creative ideas for the everyday activities in their lives or things they hope to do someday in the future.
As a global discovery tool, Pinners get access to a worldwide resource of visual content based on the categories they?re most interested in.
