You Tube Arabic launches
on Oct 5, 2010

YouTube has launched its Arabic-language interface in what could bolster the site's already strong user base in the region, parent company Google has confirmed.

The launch of the Arabic service should see the already popular site’s regional profile soar. Google said in a statement: "By offering the YouTube site in Arabic we both acknowledge and celebrate our global roots, while enabling a new group of people to engage with YouTube videos and enjoy our platform in their language."
