Social Media Translation
Social media has matured into a universal access portal to the world around us. The growth of Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn is astounding, and the number of new users continues to increase. More and more individuals and businesses are using social media to find product referrals and information about services, as well as to connect with businesses to get updates and event information.
An estimated 50 percent of social media users communicate in languages other than English, and two-thirds of online adults use social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, according to a recent report by the Pew Internet and American Life Project. Many consumers follow various brands and businesses specifically to learn about special promotions and discounts. If you are not translating your social media into languages other than English, you are missing out on reaching the other 50 percent of social media users who do not speak English.
Here are some statistics:
The following graph displays 23 countries with more than 800,000 active users of Twitter.
