Microsoft has today announced that it is making its professional networking platform, LinkedIn, available in the Hindi language. The Redmond giant says that LinkedIn aims to break the language barrier in India with support for the Hindi language, which is one of the most-used Indian languages across the world. India is the platform’s second-largest market with over 82 million members. LinkedIn recently shared an official blog post to announce Hindi-language support on the platform. So now, LinkedIn users will be able to access the platform entirely in Hindi on desktop as well as on their Android or iOS smartphones. Moreover, with the support for the Hindi language, the service is now available in 25 languages for users.
“As the next step, we’re working towards widening the range of job opportunities available for Hindi-speaking professionals across industries, including more banking and government jobs,” wrote LinkedIn country manager Ashutosh Gupta in the official blog post. “We understand that community and conversations are extremely personal, and so is language. To support more local language content, we will continue to add more Hindi publishers and creators to the platform over the coming months,” Gupta further added. Now, if you prefer to use the professional social network in Hindi on your iOS or Android device, you will need to select Hindi as your preferred device language from your device’s system settings.
