LinkedIn has announced the launch of its operations in Hindi, its first Indian regional language.
The move aims to provide greater access to professional and networking opportunities for Hindi speakers in India and around the world. With this launch, the professional network now supports 25 languages globally.
In phase one of the Hindi roll-out, members will be able to access the feed, profile, jobs, messaging, and create content in Hindi on desktop and Android (iOS to follow).
In the next step, LinkedIn will work towards widening the range of job opportunities available for Hindi speaking professionals across industries.
Ashutosh Gupta, country manager, LinkedIn India, said, "In India, LinkedIn has been mission critical to helping people connect, learn, grow and get hired during the pandemic and in this new world of work we are in. With the launch of Hindi, now more members and customers can unlock greater value from the platform through content, jobs, and networking, and express themselves in a language that they feel comfortable in. We have witnessed high engagement and member growth in the last year, and it is at this exciting inflection point that we are strengthening our vision to create economic opportunity for ‘every’ member of the workforce, and taking down language barriers for Hindi speakers across the world.”
