StatCounter Goes Global…!

Hi folks,

Our Mission…globe
At StatCounter, it’s our mission to help webmasters, bloggers and other interested parties to grow and improve their websites, blogs and online businesses.

While we already have members in over 200 countries worldwide, we want to reach out to an even wider audience…

To achieve this, we have been working on translating StatCounter. This means that many current members will soon be able to access StatCounter in their native languages AND we will also be able to reach many non-English speakers for the very first time!

Going Hungarian…
This is why we are delighted to announce that StatCounter is now available in Hungarian! The Hungarian translation of StatCounter acted as a “trial” for us and allowed us to set up all the systems required to translate the site into numerous other languages.

Going Global…
Now… we need YOUR help. We are looking for volunteers to help us translate the site into other languages. Volunteer translators must be native speakers of a non-English language but also have strong English skills.

What Languages?
This is entirely up to you, our members! Translations will be prioritized based on the demand for the different languages… so let us know your preferences!

Volunteers
If you would like to volunteer to help with this project, then please accept our sincere thanks. We are so grateful to each and every one of you for considering this request and for your support for StatCounter.
To get started, you must open a StatCounter Translator Account. You’ll find out further information by clicking the link below:

For administrative reasons, the number of translators per language will be capped. This may mean that we will be unable to accept everyone who volunteers to help with this project or, in certain circumstances, it may be necessary to suspend/close some Translator Accounts. Please accept our sincere apologies if we are unable to accept your offer of assistance at this time and we thank you in advance for your understanding in this regard.

Please feel free to leave any questions, comments or feedback below. Thanks!

  1. Amazing service there guys.

    And planning to reach out and cater to the various language speaking people is surely a wonderful job.

  2. Congrats on the release! That is a big achievement.

    I noticed a few issues with the stats.
    (1) I can’t seem to select dates before 16 Dec 08. The date-picker lets me choose earlier dates, but the resulting graph won’t go back in time, or at least it appears not to. This is in FF and Safari on Mac OS X Example: http://gs.statcounter.com/#mobile_browser-CA-daily-20080701-20080905

    (2) The mobile browser stats seem wrong, at least in Canada. iPhone didn’t release until July 08 and yet it has 40% mobile browsing share in the time period 16 Dec 08 to 5 Mar 09, trending down. Blackberry, which has been the dominant player in Canada, has about 15% share in that period, then spikes hugely to 50% in end of Feb to overtake iPhone. Doesn’t pass the sniff test.

    (3) Same comment for mobile OS. The sheer number of Nokia devices deployed makes it hard to believe this data. http://gs.statcounter.com/#mobile_os-ww-daily-20080701-20080905

    Thanks for your comment!

    (1) All data goes back to July 2008 except for mobile data which goes back to 16 Dec 2008 – apologies for any confusion this caused.

    2) The iPhone was launched June 2007 – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_iPhone – by the following year there were numerous unlocked iPhones in use in Canada despite the official release not having happened. This may explain the iPhone usage. Spikes can also happen in the mobile data due to the smaller number of users currently accessing the web using mobile as opposed to traditional devices. You can also check out the weekly or monthly stats (instead of daily) – these give a more “smooth” picture.

    3) Nokia *should* have had the mobile browser market cornered given its early-to-market advantage. Our figures seem to suggest that the Nokia browser is not being used – this could be for any number of reasons. Regardless of the number of Nokia devices out there, if they are not being used to access the internet (i.e. used as phones only) then they won’t show in the browser stats.

  3. Interesting …

    It will shore help to spread the word of excellent work that you are doing.

    SI
    Zanimivo…

    Zanesljivo bo pomagalo širiti dober glas o odličnem delu, ki ga opravljate.

    Long live StatCounter!

  4. Congratulations for the news! And thanks for the opportunity to expose the language we would like to see our stats. So I tell you there’s many many people in Catalonia that would appreciate that il would be all translated into Catalan !!

    Many thanks !!

  5. hello
    very good news, that I received in my mail this morning.
    thank you for your very good work
    I have a question, however. I have several websites, and on the older ones, on which i put an ancient code, I cannot have the “downloads” informations, that I have withe the new code.
    this site with the old code is very big in terms of number of pages, and I cannot change the code on each of them. do you now if there will be a possibility to have the new features of the new codes with this ancient site and codes ?
    thanks
    Walther

    Hi Walther,

    Sorry for any confusion! Download information is a new feature we introduced and it is automatically enabled for all new projects created – all your “old” projects will be upgraded to provide this information in the future.

  6. You have a great product, however your statement that you have your product in over 200 countries is really not correct because there are only around 197 countries in the whole world as of feb 2008

    We KNEW someone would make that point which is why we included this link in our post – did you see it? The ISO lists 246 official short names and code elements for countries – this is the list we’re basing our numbers on.
