Spanish-language sites have been in Craiglist’s plans, and some of the online classified’s websites now have those sections online.

Craigslist dipped a toe into the waters of bilingual services, but it’s a very small dip at this time.

The cheerful folk at Classified Intelligence (CI) spotted the otherwise quiet change at Craigslist. In their client email, CI said Craigslist launched these sections in a large number of mostly international cities.

“All of the cities in Mexico and many in South and Central America also have the new “Espanol / English” toggle at the top right of the page,” said CI.

The push looks limited to international sites currently. CI noted there were no Spanish options for US cities, even for Miami and Los Angeles, which are noteworthy for their substantial Spanish-language communities. That had not changed as of press time.

Craigslist sites like this one for Buenos Aires show the Spanish/English toggle in place. CI spotted few posts made by Craigslist users in Spanish, but considering the recency of this change, that’s to be expected.

    I love that Craigslist is attempting at bringing Spanish to their pages. This was long overdue, but wouldn’t they make an option for LA. Millions of people speak spanish in the United States more so then some spanish speaking countries. Props to Craigslist for starting to work on this area.
