blog languages growthA Technorati report suggested that only 36% of the blog posts are written in English while the rest are published in Japanese, Chinese, Italian and other languages.

While this data may be slightly old, it does hint at the multilingual nature of blogosphere and how we miss majority of the published content by limiting subscriptions only to RSS feeds that are written in English.

Now if you like to expand your daily information sources and read feeds published in foreign languages, Mloovi could be an ideal service for you.

  1. Mloovi translates blog feeds from one language to another using Google Translate.
  2. The translated version is available as a feed so people can directly subscribe to it in any news reader.

Update: Mloovi is out-of-service but you can use Google Scripts to translate RSS Feeds.

Founder Mike Robinson says that Mloovi is also available as a widget for blog publishers – this will help non-English speaking visitors to directly subscribe your blog in their own native language without using language translation.
