Pinterest is now available in Tagalog language

MANILA, Philippines - Popular website and app Pinterest is now available in Tagalog language.

Pinterest is described as "a tool for discovering things you love, and doing those things in real life."

Starting Tuesday (March 25), Filipinos can now access a translated version of the Pinterest website and Android apps.

"We’re excited to help Pinterest fans explore the things they love to do in Filipino," said Matt Crystal, Head of International, Pinterest.

"Pinterest Philippines already has an active pinning community with our most popular categories including fashion, travel, crafts, food and home décor. Today’s localization is a first step toward helping pinners discover their interests and hobbies in an entirely new way."

However, the Tagalog version is actually a mix of Tagalog and English words.

"Kinokolekta namin ang ilan sa mga paboritong place boards namin, para magka-inspirasyon ka sa pagpaplano mo ng 'yong bakasyon, sa paggawa ng city guide o pagse-save ng mga must-see spots," an introduction to Pinterest reads.

To follow a particular board, you can click on "i-follow" or to send a particular photo, you can click "i-send."

But "Pin It" button remains the same in English.

Pinterest, which was founded in March 2010 by Ben Silbermann, Evan Sharp and Paul Sciarra, has since been launched in more than 20 languages. The website promises to come up with more in 2014.

Many people use Pinterest to create wish lists, discover new places and plan their interior decor.

To use the Tagalog version of the site, Pinterest users can go to their home page settings and change the language to Tagalog.
