LinkedIn speaks the local language
Malaysia - In a bid to better serve the local market, professional networking site LinkedIn has launched in Bahasa Malaysia.
According to LinkedInm there are more then 100 LinkedIn Groups in Bahasa Malaysia. Large companies such as Sime Darby Berhad, Tenaga Nasional Berhad and Petronas also have LinkedIn company pages integrated to their sites.
Information technology and services, oil & energy, and education management are the top three industries in Malaysia by LinkedIn membership, the company said.
Clifford Rosenberg (pictured), managing director, South East Asia & Australia NZ at LinkedIn said: "Today's Bahasa Malaysia language launch will better support the growing number of Malaysian professionals joining LinkedIn."
"We have a growing member base in Malaysia and believe LinkedIn has a big opportunity for growth here. Local language availability often precipitates a whole new generation of LinkedIn users locally, enhancing the experience for the entire community," Rosenberg added.
Current LinkedIn members who have been using the site in English can switch their language settings to Bahasa Malaysia
The company has been active in its language localisation apart from Bahasa Malaysia. It is also available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.
