Great news! Bonnes nouvelles! Gute Nachrichten! Le Vimeo is l'debuting in l'French und der German. To accomplish this stunning feat of linguistic acrobatics, we dispatched Vimeo employees to embed deeply within France and Germany, where they earned the trust of the locals, experienced a totally unique perspective on friendship and culture, flew atop predatory birds, and uncovered stockpiles of Unobtainium, a key translation metal.*
But it all went horribly wrong, we fought in a rebellion, learned the folly of our ways, etc. So we turned to the Vimeo community for help, which proved much more effective and less CGI-intensive.
And now it's fini, fertig, finished (though not Finnish). To update your language settings, use the language selector on the bottom of any Vimeo page or the one in your Profile Settings. If your browser is set to Spanish, French or German, we'll switch you to that language automatically. You can flip back to English any time, just like they do in Bollywood movies.
We want to give huge hugs of thanks to all the fantastic francophones and Germaniacs who helped make this project happen. They made sure the translations maintained our special Vimeo flavor, and we couldn¹t have done it without them. We're extremely grateful, or as we're told they say in Paris, "J'aime faire pipi dans mes pantalons." We really mean it.
