Languages and blogging...

Something that may come as a surprise (at least to the English-speaking world) is that English isn't the biggest language of the blogosphere. In fact, English isn't even the primary language of one third of all posts that Technorati tracks anymore.

The above contains tons more stats and information than the snippet I posted, and makes for a very interesting read.

Very interesting. It is clear that English would have been third now behind Chinese and Japanese, if the Chinese expansion had not been thrown into reverse by the requirement to officially register your web site. This is clearly a set back but far from terminal decline.

If you look more carefully, you'll see Japanese is #1 not #2 (the graph labels are not listed in order of size)

Re: Languages and blogging...

Inspired by this thread I regged ビデオブログ (videoblog)

maybe it will all evolve into this, who knows?

usually I steer clear of trying to glue 2 words together as usually I trip up!

any thought anyone, did I at least get it right?

Re: Languages and blogging...

Hmmm...maybe regging ブログ界.com (blogosphere in Japanese) has some potential after all...

Re: Languages and blogging...

It just goes to show that general principle of translating Generics into other languages and registering IDNs is fundamentally sound. Obviously, there will be local cultural differences that make some terms much less relevant, but wherever you go basic human behaviour actual varies surprising little, even if language barriers can make other cultures appear quite alien.
