Fluent speakers in Arabic, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish being hired by Apple to work on Siri

If you’re reading this, then you can speak the English language, so you’ll have no problem using Siri in Arabic, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian or Swedish. However, many people miss out on Apple’s personal assistant because of their language. Fortunately, Apple is currently hiring a team to bring Siri to those who are missing out.

Apple made a listing for the Siri development team:

“Join the team responsible for delivering Siri in different parts of the world for an exciting 6 month internship in Cupertino, California.”

Apple is also planning to better some of the languages currently supported by Siri by bringing local dialects in to the software. These languages are: Korean, Chinese, and French.

I’m not sure whether this news is relevant to anyone who has read it, but it’s interesting nonetheless.

    Not entirely sure whether the latter part of your statement is correct though;
     
    “If you’re reading this, then you can speak the English language, so you’ll have no problem using Siri in Arabic, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian or Swedish.”
     
    Think we’ll have to wait until Siri has attended those announced language classes before that is true.. :D

    I’m a swede so this is good news for me, since my english dialect isn’t compatible with the ones that are offered.

    @TRicX Reading that back it sounds wrong, I meant that you won’t have a problem because you can use it in English ;-)
