Balefire Labs Adds Support for 12 Additional Languages

Balefire Labs has added support for 12 new languages to its educational app and game reviews.

With more than 4,400 reviews of educational apps, the site has added the ability for users to search for resources that are available in Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish or Turkish.

The company requires a language to have 50 top-rated apps to be included and plans to add support for more in the next year.

"We've been looking forward to a time when we could more effectively support teachers and parents in non-English speaking markets as they try to find the most effective apps and games for their kids. Today we've realized this goal," said Karen L. Mahon, president and founder of Balefire Labs, in a prepared statement. "We think the ability to filter our recommended apps by language will save time for teachers and parents in many corners of the globe."
