8 More Translations Coming for MailChimp

The entire opt-in process of your MailChimp account (the stuff your users see) has been translated into 8 more languages, and will be available in the upcoming v3.3 release (release date TBD). At the request of our customers, we’ve added:

  • Greek
  • Russian
  • Finnish
  • Polish
  • Hungarian
  • Romanian
  • Estonian
  • Ukrainian

This brings the total number of available languages in MailChimp to 24.5 (chimplish is only half a language).

When we added UTF-8 support for HTML email campaigns, and modified the signup process to make it easy to translate, our intent was to further spread the monkey love across the globe, and get more users signing on. But one pleasant surprise we’ve noticed is our current customers, who run global businesses, are now able to send even more campaigns (relevant and localized) to their international customers. They’re setting up separate lists and email templates for all their different countries.  Kinda cool!
