In a keynote at Mobile World Congress 2011, the company's chief executive Dick Costolo said that Twitter is launching a "crowd-sourced" translation centre for Russian, Indonesian and Turkish. He added that later this year it will be offering its own Portuguese translations.
Twitter is also focusing on making the service similar on different platforms. "Twitter already works on almost everything you're going to hear about this week," Costolo said. "From the highest bandwidth, high-touch, most elegant interface, to the most inexpensive cell phone carrying only SMS. I shouldn't have to think about how I use Twitter [when switching devices]."
