Everest Poker have taken a step ahead of many other online poker sites by becoming multi-lingual. Grand Virtual Inc' the software provider for Everest Poker can currently serve eight different language markets; Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portugese and Spanish. This should pave the way for millions of potential new poker players to join in the online action.
Jennifer Joyce, from Grand Virtual says "We decided to go multi-lingual because the software is powered by Grand Virtual, Inc, which has always been a leader in online gaming software that is localized by language market. We were one of the first to launch multi-lingual Casino software in 1997. Currently, our casino product supports 16 languages and we have in-house translation, marketing, and 24/7 customer support for all those language markets. We believe that by localizing the poker product we can bring the game of poker to more people. Professional poker players in most markets know how to play in English, but the game can be complex & intimidating for many casual or new players so we believe that by offering the software in more players' native languages we will open up the excitement and thrill of poker to the general population. That is why we also offer a tutorial and training room for new players."
Everest Poker won't be stopping there either! They have plans for many more languages in 2005, they will be adding Traditional Chinese, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian. Later in the year there are plans to introduce more complex languages such as Chinese, Greek, Korean and Hebrew.
Grand Virtual are making great progress in becoming one of the few truly worldwide poker sites and with a signup bonus of $100 at Everest Poker they could become of the most popular poker sites around.
