TOKYO, July 26, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/

The outdoor app solidifies its place as the home of adventure worldwide by 
delivering a native language experience to the local outdoor and cycling 
communities in new, evolving markets.
- The addition of the 5 new languages brings the total number of languages 
available to its 27 million-strong global community to 11
- Komoot is now available in:
 - English
 - German
 - French
 - Italian
 - Spanish
 - Dutch
 - Portuguese (Brazil)
 - Portuguese (European)
 - Korean
 - Japanese
 - Polish
- Komoot is globally available in every other country in English

Since its foundation in 2010, komoot has become the world's largest digital 
community for outdoor enthusiasts and cyclists - the no.1 source of outdoor 
inspiration for an increasingly global community. Komoot has existed in English 
and German for many years and recently invested in the translation of its 
platform to Italian, Spanish, French and Dutch.

Now, due to impressive local community growth in Poland, Portugal, Korea, Japan 
and Brazil – the entire komoot experience – from finding outdoor inspiration, 
to planning, navigating and sharing routes and contributing to the community 
knowledge with recommendations - will be available in the native language of 
those regions.

According to Jonas Spengler, Komoot Co-founder and Head of Product, "Nothing 
compares to using an app in your own mother tongue, the familiarity and 
ease-of-use is comforting and it really encourages and increases engagement 
both with the app and the local community.  We are celebrating this milestone 
together with our local communities in Japan, Korea, Portugal, Brazil and 
Poland and we can't wait to see the increase in inspirational adventure stories 
and local tips appearing in these locations!"

The komoot mobile app will be displayed in the same language as the selected 
phone's system language. So, if a mobile device is set to use Brazilian 
Portuguese, the komoot app will do the same. For all languages not listed 
above, the komoot app will continue to be displayed either in English or in the 
language most recently used that komoot does support.

On the komoot website, users can select from a list of supported languages in 
their profile settings

"We have been using komoot for a while already and we have been eagerly 
awaiting the day that komoot would be available in Japanese! We can't wait to 
see all the great Japanese cycling Highlights appearing in the app and we look 
forward to showing the Japanese cycling community how essential komoot is on 
our channels!"
