Technorati keyword searches now by language

Posted by Suw Charman-Anderson

Technorati have now implemented language filtering for keyword searches, with their beta providing the opportunity to filter by Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese or Spanish. So, I can search for ‘pledgebank’ in all languages, or I can narrow it down to just French. Nice!

This is only a beta at the moment, but Dave Sifry tells me that they will roll out more languages in due course.

    You might be interested to know that we’re updating PledgeBank so that it works in any number of different languages, all off the same server. We’ve already got a Brazilian Portuguese version working, and we’ll release it proper once we’ve added the ability to geographically tag pledges as being local to any spot on the Globe - that’s Chris’ project at the mo.

  2. Suw Says:

    Ooh, that’s really cool, Tom. I love PledgeBank - great idea, well implemented. But even a good idea is made better by making it multilingual. Will you be including Welsh?
