In its continuing efforts to build an international audience, Facebook today announced the release of the site translated into German. Starting today, any person who goes to Facebook.com from a German-speaking country will automatically see the site in German. With only 480,000 users, Germany is the 13th largest country on Facebook, according to stats gathered last month.
Soon, Facebook will make its translation tools available to Platform application developers who want to have their applications translated by users.
Facebook in French should be coming next, with other languages coming soon.
