Pinterest comes to the Nordics

image

For the past month, we’ve worked alongside our community to translate Pinterest in more languages around the world. Thanks to the efforts of Pinners in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, Pinterest is now available in these Nordic languages. The Finnish site was translated in four days, while the others took just a couple weeks.

The response from local Pinners was amazing, from start to finish. People were eager to figure out the best terminology for Pinterest, and we got help from folks all over, including:

Søren Jensen, a gardener in Denmark with thousands of Pins on gardening, landscaping, architecture and autos

Dejan Mauzer, an art director in Sweden, who collects Pins on web design, video games, tattoos and travel

Jaana Karinkanta, a blogger in Finland, who adds Pins about marketing, design and party planning

Maria Luice Grayston, a Pinner in Norway with over 100,000 Pins on design, food and fitness

We’ve seen more and more Pinners from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland—in fact, the number has more than doubled since the end of last year. We’re hoping these translated versions of Pinterest help even more people discover things they’re interested in, around the globe.

Thank you to the Pinners below who helped shape Pinterest in their languages; they truly made this a community-powered launch. If you’re a Pinner in one of these countries, check out the new translated version (go to your account settings to change the language)!
