To celebrate Oktoberfest and welcome the German social media community, HootSuite flies across the Atlantic to Deutschland with a beta version HootSuite for German on web and mobile, plus an integration with professional social network Xing.
We’re pleased to reach out to introduce ourselves to Germany and invite you to help us localize for your needs. Consider helping us improve the German translation and share your ideas at @HootSuite_DE. We’re listening. Danke.
HootSuite is pleased to offer HootSuite in German for the web-based dashboard, as well as mobile versions for HootSuite for iPhone / iPad, Android and Blackberry. Now our German friends can use HootSuite in their native tongue to post to their favorite social networks.
The new German option is now available for anyone to use – just choose by clicking Settings > Preferences then selecting German (or any other desired language) from the pull-down menu.
