Facebook in Danish soon to come?!

Actually I swore that I would never write about Facebook again, since i´m sick and tired of it. All news contains a direct link to Facebook at the moment. But, I have to share this simple, but again, genius way of interacting with its users.

Facebook will soon release a version in Norwegian (via NRK beta). The social networking site has been translated by members to Norwegian and is currently in a voting stage where users are choosing the best options for different translations. Facebook is also soon to be released in Swedish, according to the Translation application on the site.

"Poke" is currently "peta" in Swedish and "prik" in Danish. In Norwegian it is still called "poke" although "pirk" and "dytt" are possible alternatives. Other suggestions for poke in Swedish are "puffa" and "knuffa" and users will decide which translation that will win.

1,207 members are currently registered as translators for Norwegian and 480 for Swedish.

Simple and brilliant to get users - the ones that are dedicated to the community - to vote and be in charge of the translation.
This was the final of the final post about Facebook.
