Xobni, the popular Outlook plug-in for searching and managing contacts in Microsoft Outlook, is launching a German verion. It makes sense. German speakers are their second biggest set of users according to the company.

The move is the first in a wave of internationalization the startu is planning in the near future.

The first localized version of its desktop product in German (http://xobni.de) is accompanies by a partnership with XING, Germany’s most popular business network in the German-speaking market, and LinkedIN rival.

Xobni users will now also be able to see XING contact profiles and updates in the Xobni sidebar in Outlook.
