Apple looking to add language support for Siri

Tue, Nov 20, 2012


A new job posting on Apple indicates that everyone’s favorite purveyor of fruit based products is looking to add some language chops to Siri’s arsenal. Specifically, the job listing is for a 6-month internship in Cupertino and is specifically designed for folks looking to help deliver Siri to other parts of the world. The languages desired include Arabic, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Korean, Norwegian, and Swedish.

Candidates must be fluent in one of the languages above in addition to being fluent in English.

As it stands now, Siri is available in English, Spanish, German, Korean, Japanese, Mandarin, Catonese, French, and Italian. You might have noticed the overlap of French and Korean, a fact which may point to Apple expanding the number of workable dialects within those languages in Siri.
