Citizens of the world — welcome, bienvenidos, bienvenue, and 欢迎你们! Later this month, your managers, employees, and residents will be able to experience BuildingLink in THREE new languages. We now have Spanish, French, and Chinese (both Simplified and Traditional) in addition to English. Our team of dedicated translators is adding the finishing touches to make sure that BuildingLink is inviting and easy to use — in whichever language you feel most at home.
And even if you speak only English, you can still enjoy our new BuildingLink language selector during your down time — just jump to a new language you’d like to learn! We can’t guarantee, though, that the new BuildingLink vocabulary you’ll learn will be suitable for non-BuildingLink situations. For example, if your Parisian lover tells you, “Je t’aime,” the most suitable response is probably “I love you too,” not “I’ll log in and make a guest suite amenity reservation for two!”
You may not know that the BuildingLink site consists of over 1,600 different web pages. Making all this accessible in 4 different languages took 3 ½ years of hard work and focus. We’re debating whether to release the remaining 6 languages (90% completed), early or not. Let us know if you would enjoy access to these languages, even if they are not fully polished. You can have fun learning Turkish or German or pointing out all our mistakes!
That’s all the news for now regarding Language updates. Sayonara! Oops, we haven’t started work on Japanese just yet. Em, au revoir!
