For users who already use Hindi as their default device language, the LinkedIn app will automatically be available in Hindi. For desktop users, visit the LinkedIn homepage and tap on the “Me” icon. Then select “Settings and Privacy”>Account Preferences>Site Preferences. After this, select “Change” option infront of the “Language” category and tap on “Hindi” from the drop-down list.
Users who have chosen Hindi as the default language can tap on “See Translation” on posts on the home feed so that they can see the original post in Hindi. As per the company, “With the launch of Hindi, members also have the advantage of creating their LinkedIn profile in Hindi, and make it easier for Hindi speaking members and recruiters to find them for relevant opportunities. New LinkedIn members can sign up for LinkedIn in Hindi by visiting LinkedIn.com and registering for a new account.”
LinkedIn will also allow members with existing English profiles to add a second language profile in Hindi. However, adding a second language profile is currently only available on the Desktop.
For the unversed, users can create a second language profile, by going to the “Me” icon on the top of the home page and select “View Profile”. Finally, click on “Add profile in another language”.
