Pocket adds support for 6 new languages, including Japanese


Yesterday, the popular read-it-later [1] app Pocket launched in six new languages yesterday, adding support for Japanese, German, Italian, Russian, French, and Spanish. As you can see in Pocket’s graphic below, those languages account for 22 percent of the services users, with Japanese comprising 5% of Pocket users. The company adds:

Not only is the app fully-translated across our platform for French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish, we’ve also made significant improvements to Article View accuracy for these languages.

On our Japanese site, we’ve already been including the Pocket button for our users for some time. For me personally, Pocket is an application that I use daily, primarily because of it’s great integration with other apps and services.


  1. Pocket was formerly called ‘Read it Later’ as you may recall.  ↩
