Here’s a first look at the Spanish language version of Facebook!
As reported previously, Facebook is launching a major initiative to translate the site into many languages using a “crowd-sourced” approach. Facebook has created a Translation application allows users to translate every word on the Facebook site into a destination language.
In order to get high quality translations, Facebook has created a voting system that allows other translators to evaluate the quality of the translations. All user-entered information (such as status, personal info, and contact info) will remain as entered by users in their native language.
Facebook will be launching internationalized versions in Spanish, German, and French first – likely sometime in March – with more to come after that…
