LinkedIn today announced the launch of LinkedIn in Hindi, the first Indian regional language on its platform, in order to better serve the global Hindi-speaking audiences. Indian users can now create their LinkedIn profile in Hindi, making it easier for other Hindi-speaking LinkedIn members and recruiters to discover them for relevant jobs. Users can also use Hindi to access the feed, jobs, messaging, and to create content.

“With the addition of Hindi, LinkedIn now supports 25 languages globally and we will continue to evaluate other regional languages as we strive to create equitable economic opportunities for every member of the workforce and to help diverse professional communities come together on LinkedIn.”
LinkedIn says, “we’re working towards widening the range of job opportunities available for Hindi-speaking professionals across industries, including more banking and government jobs.” “We understand that community and conversations are extremely personal, and so is language. To support more local language content, we will continue to add more Hindi publishers and creators to the platform over the coming months.”
“In India, LinkedIn has been mission-critical to helping people connect, learn, grow, and get hired during the pandemic and in this new world of work we are in. With the launch of Hindi, now more members and customers can unlock greater value from the platform through content, jobs, and networking, and express themselves in a language that they feel comfortable in.” – Ashutosh Gupta, India Country Manager, LinkedIn
“We have witnessed high engagement and member growth in the last year, and it is at this exciting inflection point that we are strengthening our vision to create economic opportunity for ‘every’ member of the workforce, and takedown language barriers for Hindi speakers across the world,” he added.
