For those who remember our April 2010 blog post in which we announced 7 more language packs, to total 27 official languages, the above list is a huge linguistic feat – we’ve added 11 more languages in fewer than 18 months!

avast! is the most localized of all antivirus programs. And thanks to our free version it’s also the most available protection in the world! It wouldn’t be possible without huge support from our community, as many of our program languages were translated by volunteers.

Kudos to all the avast! translators who have both contributed in the past and are working on current versions. A list of their names and their pictures can be found on our avast! community page.
