Airbnb Adds More Languages to System

Airbnb has made its service more accessible by adding over twenty new languages to the system, including Tagalog and Vietnamese.

The OTA says that it now supports 62 languages, including local variations of multiple languages, around the world.

Airbnb has grown rapidly. In 2011, there were just 12 cities around the world with more than 1,000 Airbnb listings. Today, there are nearly 1,000 cities that have more than 1,000 Airbnb listings.
