orkut in Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu!

Orkut in now available in Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu!

"Indians have always been a vibrant part of the orkut community, and we continue to see more Indians joining orkut every day. It's our goal to make orkut the ultimate tool for self-expression and communication, and we know that if we're not translated into your native language, this becomes harder. So we worked closely with Googlers in our Indian offices to help develop the initial release of these languages." said Patrick Barry, Software Engineer.

Viewing the orkut site in Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil or Telugu (or any one of our other 12 languages) is easy.
  • Click the settings button under your profile photo (or click the blue settings link at the top of any page).
  • On the general tab, choose your preferred display language from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
  • Click save changes.
If you are having trouble reading languages on the "Settings" page, it is likely that your browser scripts have not been updated. For Internet Explorer, proceed to "Tools" and then "Windows Update". Here you should accept the Windows XP Service Pack 2 update. All languages are included in this update.
