Layar is now in Chinese!

Chris Cameron June 3, 2013

In April, with the release of Layar 7.2.2, we included language support for Dutch, French, German, Japanese and Spanish. Today, with the release of 7.2.3, we’ve added another language to Layar - and it’s a big one!

Chinese has come to the Layar App! Check out some of the screenshots below.

Now users in China will be able to read the Layar App’s menus and help-text in Simplified Chinese characters, making for a better user experience.

This makes it easier for publishers in China to create a seamless and engaging experience for their customers. Publishers could already tailor their interactive print content into the language of their choice, and now the Layar App itself can do the same.

Layar 7.2.3 is available now in the App Store and Google Play Store.

Layar 7.2.2 - Interactive Print in Your Language

Chris Cameron April 2, 2013

It’s no secret that interactive print is exploding across the globe.

From real estate agencies in Australia, to big brands and publishers in Canada and the United States, to the biggest publications in France and the Netherlands, and even a boom in downloads of the Layar App in Saudi Arabia – Layar is a truly worldwide company. We’ve even taken it upon ourselves to make sure content is distributed across dozens of servers worldwide for greater speed.

As the international market for interactive print emerges, it’s time for us to take the next step in providing the best possible user experience to as many people as possible. Available today for iOS and Android, version 7.2.2 of the Layar App  includes support for the following languages:

Combined with English, these languages make up a large portion of Layar users around the globe, but this just the beginning. To provide the best experience to more users, we will add more languages based on usage and demand over time.

The inclusion of native language support within the Layar App makes it easier for publishers to create seamless and engaging experiences for their readers. Publishers could already tailor their interactive print content into the language of their choice, and now the Layar App itself follows suit to provide an immersive experience in a user’s native language. It’s simply a better all-around experience for users.
