Quora now available in Hindi

New Delhi, May 31: Aiming to expand its user base in India, popular question-and-answer platform Quora on Thursday launched in Hindi and promised the roll out of the platform in several other Indian vernacular languages soon. “The launch of Quora Hindi is an expansion of our mission to share knowledge. We will soon launch the platform in other Indian languages within a few months,” Gautam Shewakramani, India Country Manager at Quora, told IANS. “We are preparing the launch of the platform in several languages and the next launch may be in more than one language,” Shewakramani said.
Quora was founded in 2009 by Adam D’Angelo, a former Chief Technology Officer at Facebook. The Mountain View, California-headquartered company currently has 200 million monthly unique visitors. Its English language version started generating revenues through advertisements from May 2017. Besides English, the platform is available in Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and starting May 2018 Indonesian too. “There is currently no plan to monetise Quora Hindi. The focus now is on maintaining quality and credibility of information shared on the platform,” Shewakramani said. “The idea of knowledge-sharing has a universal appeal. India fits well into our mission as this country has always valued knowledge and shared them with the greater world community,” he added. (IANS)
