May 16, 2013 (02:05 PM EDT)
SAN FRANCISCO, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jimdo, the easiest website creator on the web, launched the Turkish language version of its DIY website-building tool, the startup announced today. Jimdo sees great potential in the large and youthful country. Jimdo already supports 11 other languages1 with a team of native speakers, translated help documentation, and a localized version of the tool. Now, Jimdo is available to over 75 million Turkish speakers2.
With its new language offering, Jimdo enters a lucrative market. Turkey is eagerly embracing the internet: there are 35 million people online, a 44 percent penetration3, and nearly 70 percent of internet users are under 35 years old4. "Turkey has the youngest and most engaged internet users in Europe. It's a high potential country in the early stages of internet development," said Jimdo co-founder, Christian Springub. "By eliminating the language barrier and hiring a support team of native speakers, we're opening up Jimdo to a new customer base."
Jimdo currently has more than 8 million websites worldwide and there is at least one website created using Jimdo in every country of the world. With the new language version, Jimdo hopes more websites will be created from Turkish-speaking parts of the world.
