[Language] Catalan Translation

It's been a while since Spotify has become a mass service used here in Catalonia. For years, different users have asked if it would be possible to have the different Spotify apps available in Catalan, our language.

 

It's not hard to have the desktop apps (Win, Mac, Linux, Web) and the mobile apps (Android, iOS, Windows Phone...) translated into Catalan. A lot of other services and apps have included Catalan years ago (services and products from Google, Apple, Microsoft, Mozilla... already include it).

 

We understand that Spotify AB has enough resources to translate their apps and services to Catalan. Why Belgians, Canadians and Swiss can have the apps in two different languages and in Spain there is only one option? Why people in Andorra don't have the option to choose their official language, Catalan?

It would be interesting to know which are these factors.

Thanks for convincing me to keep my subscription in Google Play Music instead of bringing it to Spotify.

Hi!

 

Yes please we need it in Catalan, Vasco and Gallego, all those languages are spoken in Spain. Everyone speaks Spanish but it's better that each community had their language implemented.

There are only two languages in spain? People from catalonia (spain), forget that we also have Galician and Basque for example.

And about Catalan...Which variant of Catalan? There are some differences among the catalan spoken in Mallorca, Barcelona and Valencia for example.

From my point of view, all spaniards understand spanish, I think spotify efforts can go in other direction
