Hi everyone. My name is Nico Posner, and I am the product manager responsible for our international sites here at LinkedIn.
LinkedIn is a global network of over 42 million professionals from every country around the world, with approximately half of our member base outside the United States. Our mission at LinkedIn is to connect the world’s professionals, and we would like to do this in as many languages as possible. A frequent request from our members is to offer the LinkedIn website in their native language. Today, the LinkedIn website is available in four languages: English, Spanish, French and German (we allow users to offer their profiles in over 40 languages), but we’d like to extend that to as many professionals as possible around the globe by offering additional languages.
