February 15, 2012

Redlands, California—To better serve the global community, Esri has localized ArcGIS Online in nine additional languages. The translation of the ArcGIS Online website into languages other than English makes it easier for users around the world to create maps, share their organizations' content, and collaborate with other users in their local language.

In addition to English, users can interact with ArcGIS Online in Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish. These languages will automatically be presented when users access ArcGIS Online through the web-based interface at Once users have signed in to ArcGIS Online, they can choose to change their language and region preference through their user profiles.

Esri's international distributors have selected numerous featured maps and apps for their region and will continue to curate locale-specific content to keep it up-to-date and meaningful to regional users.

The ArcGIS Online help system will soon be available in 10 languages (including the default, English).
