Currently, Evernote has over 50 million users across the world and supports over 20 languages.
Evernote Vice President of International Operations, Dmitry Stavisky says: “We are very happy to add support for Arabic, the fourth most spoken world language, which has over 300 million native speakers.
“Arabic is a right-to-left language, so it was harder for us to support than other languages.
Fortunately, several Evernote engineers speak Arabic, and that made it easier for us to do this localization. We started with Evernote for Android, which is a top platform for Evernote. “Today we have over 600,000 users in Arabic-speaking countries, and we expect this number to grow rapidly.”
