LinkedIn Expands Ads Into 17 New Languages

By: Chris Crum - August 28, 2012

LinkedIn announced today that it is launching LinkedIn Ads in 17 new languages.

“LinkedIn Ads now provides a truly local experience and allows you to create ads in the language of your choice,” says LinkedIn’s Gyanda Sachdev. “From Japanese and Czech to French and Turkish, this update makes it that much easier for members to share information and create messages that resonate with other members they want to reach.”

“For example, the addition of new languages to LinkedIn Ads allows a finance executive in Brazil to use Spanish to connect with clients in Spain, while a tech company in Hong Kong can frame its message in Dutch to pursue customers in Amsterdam,” adds Sachdev.

LinkedIn ads will now be available in the following languages:

English
Czech
Dutch
French
German
Indonesian
Italian
Japanese
Korean
Malay
Norwegian
Polish
Portuguese
Romanian
Russian
Spanish
Swedish
Turkish

LinkedIn has 175 million members worldwide. Earlier this month, the company reported an 89% year-over-year increase in revenue. This language expansion should add to the numbers quite nicely.
