New avast! update adds 7 more language packs

This Wednesday, we released a new program update for avast!, version number 5.0.507. It brings a fair amount of fixes and new features (details here) and also 7 new language packs. Namely, the following languages were added:

  • Dutch
  • Finnish
  • Norwegian
  • Portuguese (Portugal)
  • Slovenian
  • Turkish
  • Vietnamese

This makes the current list of languages supported by avast 5 reach the number of 27:

  • Bulgarian
  • Chinese Simplified
  • Chinese Traditional
  • Czech
  • Dutch
  • English
  • Estonian
  • Finnish
  • French
  • German
  • Greek
  • Hungarian
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Norwegian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese (Brazil)
  • Portuguese (Portugal)
  • Russian
  • Slovak
  • Slovenian
  • Spanish
  • Swedish
  • Turkish
  • Ukrainian
  • Vietnamese

(list is alphabetically sorted)

As you can see, we're devoted to making avast! available in all parts of the world. And the next program update, which is probably due in a month or so, will add even more (including some of the "right-to-left" ones), so if your language is not supported yet, please stay tuned.

It is also worth mentioning that most of the translations were done by you, our dear users and community members, on a completely voluntary basis. I'd like to take this opportunity and say a big Thanks to everyone who helped translating, proofreading or testing the packages.

On a side note, I'd like to also thank our users for upgrading to the new builds so fast. For example, we're now less than 48 hours after version 5.0.507 was released, and yet, over half of our v5 user base is already running it. Now that's fast... Keep up the good work.
