As some of you might’ve already spotted, we’ve ‘localised’! What does that mean? Well, it means MOO is now available in more than one language. Since launch, MOO has shipped to countries all over the world, and little-by-little we’ve been learning, so we can speak to you in your own language too.
So far, MOO has been translated into French, Italian, Spanish and German. If your browser is already set for one of these languages, it should automatically appear in the language of your choice. If it’s not, you can switch languages by clicking the links at the bottom of every page.
As I’ve already mentioned, we are still learning, so if you spot something a bit odd please do let us know. We might be a bit embarrassed, but we’ll do what we can to fix it!
In the mean time – welcome everyone! Pull up a chair, and make yourself feel at home.
Eh oui, certains d’entre vous l’ont probablement d
Small comment on the French version of the post: it’s quite a bit more formal than the English version. Too much “nous”, not enough “on”. The slightly ‘chatty’ style is lost, which is a shame, and it feels a tad stiff.
Other than that, there are no mistakes, which is already great!
I already left a comment a few days ago about the availability of Italian, but wanted to add my 2c also here.
Same as in French (as I get from Stephanie’s comment above) the Italian message is still a bit stiffer than the English. An example is the closing sentence in the post above.
To keep to informal tone, you could use something like: “Nel frattempo, benvenuto! Prenditi una sedia, accomodati e fa’ come fossi a casa tua.”
Have you ever thought about translating into other English “languages” … like Australian?
Hi Denise and other Moos -
Congratulations on the new languages! But. It doesn’t seem to work for me…
I’m on a MacBookPro, Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20070914 Firefox/18.104.22.168.
When I click on another language option, I get taken to the new URL – http://it.moo.com – but the language hasn’t changed.
Sorry if this isn’t the right place to tell you, but, whatever.
Hi! I’m relatively new here and I just got my cards today…and on to stickers now. I’m completely in love with MOO and it’s the greatest service (and people) I’ve come across so far. If you want, I can translate into Russian – I do have a degree in linguistics after all
We know that lots of you are great ambassadors for MOO and so we've been thinking of a way to say thank you. Which is why you can now actually earn money off your next order when you refer friends to MOO.Find out more
