Orkut Now available in Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu

In quest to make orkut universally accessible, Orkut is now available in 5 new languages: Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu. Indians have always been a vibrant part of the orkut community, and we continue to see more Indians joining orkut every day.Since there are many different nuances to these languages, orkut wants to hear your feedback. To help them improve the translation or tell us what language you'd like to see orkut in, you can visit this community on orkut: Indian Language Translations. They chose these languages initially because together they cover 80% of India. They do recognize India has more than 400 different spoken languages, but think these 5 are a good start, and hope that introducing orkut in these regional tongues brings orkut closer to many more of you to bridge the gap between language and technology. Viewing the orkut site in Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil or Telugu (or any one of our other 12 languages) is easy.
  1. Click the settings button under your profile photo (or click the blue settings link at the top of any page).
  2. On the general tab, choose your preferred display language from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
  3. Click save changes.
If you are having trouble reading languages on the "Settings" page, it is likely that your browser scripts have not been updated. For Internet Explorer, proceed to "Tools" and then "Windows Update". Here you should accept the Windows XP Service Pack 2 update. All languages are included in this update.

We hope this will help many more people enjoy orkut in their own language every day.
