Yes Yes Orkut is now available in 5 Indian Languages. Orkut has taken the next step forward in its goal of being the most popular social network in India. Orkut also recently won the MTV Youth Icon Award. Orkut has been busy offlate rolling out a new design for its users. And now they have done it again by making Orkut available in Over 5 Indian Languages that will surely bridge the divide that exists between Technology and Communication.

Orkut : MTV Youth Icon

Here is a brief rundown into what the Orkut Team posted on their blog :

In our quest to make orkut universally accessible, we’re now available in 5 new languages: Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu. Indians have always been a vibrant part of the orkut community, and we continue to see more Indians joining orkut every day. It’s our goal to make orkut the ultimate tool for self-expression and communication, and we know that if we’re not translated into your native language, this becomes harder. So we worked closely with Googlers in our Indian offices to help develop the initial release of these languages.

Orkut Now Available in Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Tamil and Telugu

Trying out the new Languages on Orkut is really simple and here are the instructions for it :

  • 1. Click the settings button under your profile photo (or click the blue settings link at the top of any page).
  • 2. On the general tab, choose your preferred display language from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
  • 3. Click save changes.

I am also attaching a screencast showing you how to do it. RSS Readers you need to click here to watch the video.
