The Language of Fashion is Universal

Hola, Ciao and Hallo!

Polyvore has been a great success in the United States, but we also recognize that half of our visits actually come from outside of the US. In order to bring Polyvore to every country in the world, we've started working on internationalizing Polyvore. We want Polyvore to be available in every language -- after all, creativity in fashion has no international boundaries :)

In fact, the recently launched Polyvore Japan was our first leap into an international market and we hope to continue this trend in the coming months!

In order for us to localize Polyvore in a way that say, people from Italy, Brazil or Croatia like it, we've created a translation tool. This tool lets the Polyvore community (that's you!) submit the best translations of English words currently seen on the site. For example, we want you folks from France to choose how to say 'set' and you folks from Italy to let us know how to say 'Welcome! You are the latest member.'

You can start using our translation tool today. We're currently looking for translations in German, Japanese, Italian, French, Spanish, Polish and Croatian and will be adding more languages soon.

As always, we look forward to receiving your feedback!

I think this is a lovely idea, a better way to connect the world in one site ;) Fashion , music, love is universal. I love to meet different people. I speak spanish, english and taught myself italian, but having contacts from italy helps me get much more better in their tongue.

LOvely idea ;)
