Airbnb Now Accessible in Twice as Many Languages

Airbnb is the world’s largest online marketplace for unique and authentic places to stay and things to do, offering over 7 million accommodations and 40,000 handcrafted activities, all powered by local hosts. Approximately six guests check into an Airbnb listing every second. And these check-ins are happening around the world: In 2011, there were 12 cities with more than 1,000 Airbnb listings; today, nearly 1,000 cities have more than 1,000 Airbnb listings. Similarly, in 2011 only one city welcomed over 100,000 guest arrivals in Airbnb listings, but in the past year, more than 300 cities have welcomed over 100,000 guest arrivals.

While Airbnb is already used in more than 191 countries and regions around the world, we are constantly working to make our platform accessible to more people. From Albanian to Zulu, we want everyone to feel welcome on Airbnb, no matter what language they speak. 

Today, we are doubling the number of languages in which hosts and guests can use Airbnb. Now supporting 62 languages around the world, the Airbnb platform is accessible to more than 4 billion native speakers. With these new languages, we’re working to bring economic opportunity to even more hosts, and making it easier for more guests to experience travel that is local, authentic and unique.
