5miles Adds Spanish Language Support To Mobile Marketplace

Dallas-based mobile marketplace app developer 5miles, which is venture backed by Blue Lake, IDG, Morningside and SIG-China, and others, said it has launched a new, U.S. marketplace app in Spanish. According to the company, the new app specifically targets Spanish- and other non-English speaker users in the United States. 5miles said it now enables the translation of the app's goods and services into multiple languages, including not only Spanish but also Portuguese, German, French, Japanese, and Korean. 5miles said it will also offer up customer service in Spanish. 5miles is developing a mobile marketplace, which lets people buy and sell secondhand items from others in their local area.
