Today we introduce seven new language versions of IEBlog—French, German, Portuguese (Brazil), Korean, Japanese, Chinese (PRC), and Russian. Links to these appear in the new “Languages” block at the top of the right column. We plan to publish translated versions five to ten days after their appearance on the English language IEBlog.
One of the more fun programming tasks in localizing IEBlog was to correctly translate and reformat the dates and times of the posts and comments. We decided to go one step further and translate the time (which was previously always displayed in US Pacific Time) to the time zone of the viewer. We also made this change to the English language version.
If you’re a speaker of one of these languages, we hope you’ll enjoy the new versions of IEBlog.
