    Twitter for right-to-left languages


    Twitter, the micro-blogging social medium has now rolled out new versions of the site to support the right to left languages such as Urdu, Hebrew, Farsi and Arabic. This is the first time that an attempt for this is made.

    As per the source, Twitter along with the help of 13,000 volunteers achieved the translation of the menu options and the support pages in the four languages mentioned above. The experts of social media claim that this move should be helpful for the ordinary people as they can make use of the service for purposes like tweeting their everyday life and to help the politicians to the account.

    A Saudi blogger, co-founders of grassroots #Lets TweetInArabic campaign, a BBC journalist and an IT professional of Iran were also volunteers of translation process, claims the official blog of Twitter. Some of the volunteers actually live in regions where the micro-blogging service is blocked officially. Their efforts despite of this speak the volumes about hoe much people expect to make the service accessible and also understandable, it adds.

    Twitter added that integrating the right to left content in the service has posed a very distinct challenge. Now, the micro-blogging service is available in 28 languages and will announce an appeal for those people to further increase the number tentatively.
