This morning we reported on KickApps localization offering. Stan Schroeder at Mashable is now reporting that social network hi5 has announced the launch of their OpenSocial compliant translation tool.
The hi5 translation tool is OpenSocial compliant so it will allow developers who translate their apps on hi5 to lift them and place them onto other OpenSocial-enabled networks. And hi5 is allowing developers to tap into the hi5 free labor/crowdsourced community so that the apps can be translated for nearly free. Seems like a big win for hi5/OpenSocial developers.
Schroeder notes, "This is a good example of why it pays off to be a part of the OpenSocial posse; you create an internationalized application compliant with the standard and you can deploy it on any site that supports it. Of course, Facebook and its platform is now big enough to draw developers regardless of OpenSocial, but these things do make a difference in the long run."
