Windows Live available in Catalan

Microsoft has launched its Windows Live services in Catalan. The language is the official language of Andorra, but spoken mostly in the North-Eastern part of Spain.

Microsoft decided to launch in the non-official language because of the big percentage of Windows Live-users in Spain (about 20%) are Catalan people.

Microsoft is providing Windows Live Messenger, search, hotmail and other services in Catalan. To use them you have to have your browser enabled in the Catalan language, all services then will be automatically configured in Catalan.

  • ´Microsoft decided to launch in the non-official language...´

    Catalan is an official language, which becomes clear when your are reading beyond the first sentence in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalan_language.
