Ed note: Starting today, professionals in Malaysia, Indonesia and Korea can now sign-up for LinkedIn in their very own local language. This is a post from Arvind Rajan, Managing Director and Vice President of APAC and Japan at LinkedIn.
Today, I am pleased to share LinkedIn.com is now available in in three new local languages Bahasa Indonesia, Bahasa Malaysia and Korean. As a truly global professional network we continue to grow and deepen our footprint in the Asia Pacific region, by being more local and relevant to professionals in each of these different countries. There are now more than 20 million members in Asia Pacific and Japan who have already established their professional identities and are building their networks and gaining access to insights and opportunities on LinkedIn. We believe that this member base will continue to grow strongly.
In addition to the launch of Bahasa Malaysia, Bahasa Indonesia and Korean today, we’ve also recently launched LinkedIn in Japanese and opened offices in Singapore and Japan earlier this year. So, if you’re a professional in any of these three countries, all you’ve to do to start accessing LinkedIn is to create a LinkedIn Profile in Bahasa Indonesia, Bahasa Malaysia or Korean by going to http://id.linkedin.com, http://my.linkedin.com, or http://kr.linkedin.com. Current LinkedIn members who have been using the site in English can switch their language settings to Bahasa Indonesia, Bahasa Malaysia or Korean by going to http://linkd.in/changelanguage.
