Hootsuite, one of the major tools for Twitter lovers, now has translation built into its iPhone app–Japanese, German, Spanish, and Portuguese (http://blog.hootsuite.com/iphone-languages-instapaper-email/#). While this does give us access to one of the world’s truly leading digital markets, Japan, other Asian countries are not yet included (I remain hopeful). Still, a big hat tip to Hootsuite for thinking like an Internationalist! A rare thing in the 21st century, so much appreciated.
Keep pushing forward. Add a few more languages, develop the tool, and we have but one of several possible solutions for communicating more effectively across greater Asia’s fragmented markets.
