Pinterest announced on Friday that it expanded its community to Scandinavia, with a little help from Pinners in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. The company announced its latest expansion with a blog post, explaining that the number of Pinners in the region more than doubled since the end of last year.
Pinterest is now available in all four Nordic languages, with the Finnish site being translated in just four days, while the remaining three took “a couple of weeks.” The company sent out a kudos to four Pinners for their help, including Soren Jensen, a gardener in Denmar, Dehan Mauzer, an art director in Sweden, Jaana Karinkanta, a blogger in Finland, and Maria Luice Grayston, a Pinner in Norway.
The company noted that they have been seeing more and more Pinners from Scandinavia, prompting the idea to translate the site into the four languages. With the new sites, Pinterest hopes that even more people will discover what they’re interested in through Pins. To access the new translated version, all you need to do is go to account settings and change the language.
While Jensen, Mauzer, Karinkanta, and Grayston were key to the newly translated versions of Pinterest, the company added more names to its thank you list in the post.
