YouTube Goes International

At the unexciting Google Press Day, an event that took place in Paris, YouTube announced 9 localized versions for: Brazil, France, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Poland, Spain and UK. The sites will have localized interface and content. YouTube has "various major content partners, like the BBC, France 24, the Spanish Antena 3 and Cuatro TV, as well as football clubs, and non-profit organizations like Greenpeace."

YouTube hopes to expand its audience and to take some market share from video sites that are successful in some of these countries, like DailyMotion in France.


  1. I'm American, living in Paris, and while I love YouTube, DailyMotion really does have better quality video.

  2. Wow, this post is 6 years ago. YouTube provides localized versions for Vietnam, South Africa, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Russia, Germany and more.
