A More Customised Local Experience on YouTube

YouTube is dedicated to presenting original content uploaded by people from around the globe. Last year, when we launched local YouTube sites around the world, we were able to more fully appreciate the diversity of talent in our global community.



Not all French speakers live in France. Japanese entertainment extends far beyond Japan. We are thrilled to unveil a truly global experience on youtube.com. We've enhanced the site so you can pick a language and, separately, a local lens for the content. For example, you can view today's Featured Videos for Canada while navigating the site interface in French, UK English, or any of the other 15 offered translations. The language and local content selection links are found in the masthead, right next to the YouTube logo.



And with YouTube localised in 19 geographies and available in 15 languages including Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese, there are 300 ways you can customise your international experience, making our site accessible to more people around the world -- even if you're a French Canadian living in Italy and interested in what's popular in Korea. It is a small world after all.

Hey great job. Now those of us who travel internationally can never get back to plain ol www.youtube.com. I might be able to get 1/2 english 1/2 japanese while I'm here if I tell it that I'm from the UK.

but seriously wtf?

How about some more localised features like videos per county/state. I like to see what people in my local area (beautiful Ellesmere Port) are up to.

LordofthePort,
Everyone knows that the place to head to for Ellesmere content is your channel -- if not, they do now...

maslowpoet,
You can head back to the .com/Global homepage. The content selection is set by the tab on the left-hand side, the right-hand side sets your language preference. So you can go Japanese/Japanese, Global/Japanese, Global/English (US) -- so hopefully you can get the best of what we have to offer.
