Italian, French and Spanish speakers are catered for on the site and in the software
Thursday 30th November 2006
Purple Lounge is the latest online poker room and casino to announce the launch of further foreign language sites.
Purple Lounge software is now available for download in French, Spanish, Italian and English as well as the website being available to view in all four languages. Additionally, the site is also available to view in Japanese, Chinese, and Turkish, affording poker players the chance to play an online hand in their mother tongue.
Chris Gorman, Chairman of Purple Lounge, deemed the changes imperative. “Our players come from all over world and we want our site to reflect their needs,” he said.
“Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world so it made sense we should offer it as a language option in the software,” Gorman continued. “We're offering Italian as the market for Italian players is about to undergo some interesting changes. With the legalisation of online gambling in Italy imminent, it seemed a natural step for us to make Italian available.
“And with the French language being widely spoken, not just in Europe,” added Gorman, “the addition of French software completes our offering, for the moment.”
