Yahoo! Mail – Coming to a Language Near You

Posted: 7th of June, 2013
Hello, world! We’d like to give a big welcome to our new Yahoo Mail markets and languages around the world.

Yes, that’s right – today we’re announcing the international expansion of Yahoo Mail to 27 new markets and 22 new languages. 700 million of you have already come to know and love Yahoo!, Yahoo Mail and all of the different experiences we have to offer, but we have been focused on extending Yahoo to even more of you worldwide.

With today’s news, Yahoo Mail is now in more than 70 markets and 46 languages worldwide. Moreover, by adding these languages and markets today, we’re now able to reach a potential 226 million new people across every single continent.  Or to put it another way, with a push of a button (or two) approximately 90% of the world’s Internet population can now use Yahoo Mail in their native language.

Some of the new languages and markets coming on board:
  • Ten new languages in Asia, including eight new languages in India alone.
  • Twelve new languages in Europe, including Serbian, Hungarian, Bulgarian and Croatian.
  • Several new markets around the globe, including South Africa, Belgium, Austria and Portugal.
Since launching Yahoo Mail earlier this year in May, we’ve been continuously focused on delivering a faster, safer and easier online communications experience, expanding into markets like Arabic with our Maktoob launch, and now we’re delighted to offer it to all these new countries. Check it out, have fun, and let us know what you think!
