Vine Focuses On Global Expansion With 19 New Languages

Twitter’s six-second video sharing app, Vine, today launches in a number of new languages. Nineteen, to be exact.

New languages include Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Norwegian, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Thai and Turkish on both the iOS and Android apps, as well as Filipino and Polish on the Android app.

In the future, the company is also focused on filtering the trending and popular videos based on country. That way, users in a certain country will have the option to see what’s popular with their fellow countrymen as opposed to global popularity.

Here’s what Vine had to say about the release:

Now, it’s even easier for people around the world to watch and share posts that make us laugh, teach us something new or help us find out what’s happening in the world.
We’re also beginning to explore ways to surface Vine videos that are popular in a particular country. Wherever you are in the world –– be it Japan, Brazil or somewhere in between –– we hope this update makes it easier for you to discover and create videos that bring us all closer together.

Vine recently updated its app with a few new editing features, including the ability to remove earlier clips from the Vine and save drafts, two features that were made available on Instagram Video.

But Vine continues to push despite competition from the Facebook-owned behemoth. Earlier this month, Vine launched on Windows Phone.

In August, Vine topped 40 million users. The app’s growth rate certainly increased after launching on Android in June, when the company had 13 million users.
