In another move to capture consumers in the world’s largest market, Apple has opened a Chinese language version of its Apple Support Community forums. First noticed by AppleInsider, the forums Chinese speakers help each other in their own native language. AppleInsider notes that the forum posts are sparse as of now, but that’s to be expected when a forum is only a few days old.
Apple also sent letters to developers this week, asking them to localize their apps in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Turkish, and Arabic. Apple told developers that greater localization could have a positive influence on sales. Apple also asked developers to advertise the fact that their apps are localized.
