German Airbnb clone 9flats adds new languages

9flats, one of the German versions of Airbnb, has just added some new languages to its platform, signalling its big ambitions to race against its competitors and expand internationally at lightening speed.

The social marketplace for property rentals, which was founded by former Qype-creator Stephan Uhrenbacher, now also speaks Turkish, Polish and Dutch. Together with the pre-existing language versions in German, French, English, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian, 9flats is now available in 9 languages.

Competitor Wimdu already offers its platform in over 15 languages, which is 6 more than 9flats even after their recent language additions. Airbnb, the US-based inventor of this business model, currently also supports 9 languages, the same as 9flats.

9flats is headquartered in Berlin and recently secured an investment of roughly $10 million from Redpoint Ventures and eVenture Capital Partners back in May. It seems they’re putting this funding to good use already, so watch this space!
