After months of work from our dev team, last week marked the official launch of our first localized site with Careers 2.0 in German. We celebrated the occasion in style on December 5 with a blow-out party at Betahaus in Berlin complete with product demos, free food, free t-shirts, oh, and German beer of course.
But why Germany? Well, aside from the fact that it gave us a great excuse to make these really cool t-shirts, we have a few other pretty good reasons for this expansion:
All in all, it's been a great project for our team (though also a difficult one, as you'll hear about in a future blog post) and localizing the site was an important way for us to support the German-speaking community on Stack Overflow. As always, we’re open to hearing your feedback, so let us know what you think.
P.S. We know we missed some things, so if you speak German, feel free to check out the site and let us know what we still need to fix.
