We're really excited to announce the official launch of our Chinese version
Jimdo has had a large number of Chinese-speaking users from the very beginning, but, unfortunately, they have had to rely on our English-language version. We are now really pleased to have eliminated this language barrier with our Chinese version. We think it is a really great move to make Jimdo available in China. It's the first step in our strategy to further internationalize Jimdo (Pages to the People ;)).
Jimdo seems quite popular in China. In addition to our already existing users, we ran a closed beta of the Chinese version and opened up 500 Chinese JimdoFree-Pages. They were gone in less than
3.5 hours. We'd like to use this occasion to thank all of our testers for your great feedback and support!
In addition, we'd also like to thank our team of Chinese partners in Shanghai, the Asian branch of MH | direkt! These guys did a tremendous job adjusting Jimdo to the Chinese market, running the beta and translating Jimdo. In addition, they'll be responsible for further support and marketing! They are so organized and so professional - it's just been a real pleasure setting up the Chinese version with them. So a big thanks to these guys!
Now, we're really excited to see many many Chinese Jimdo-Pages! And make sure to send us your feedback (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you've got a Chinese support question please send it to email@example.com.
