Twitter is now available in Dutch and Indonesian as of Monday, thanks to a crowd-sourced team of volunteers who translated Twitter’s applications, support pages and home page.

Volunteer translators can sign up via Twitter’s Translation Center to contribute to translations of Twitter’s apps and pages.

Twitter is now available in 11 languages: Dutch, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish, and Turkish.

Filipino and Malay up next, according to the company blog. Given the power of social media for authors to promote their works, whether self-published or traditionally published, more languages means more authors can reach readers in their native languages.
