MXit in your multi-language

MXit is available in many languages since Version 5.2!

  • Afrikaans – South African language.
  • German (Dutch/Deutsch)
  • English
  • Spanish (Español)
  • French (Français)
  • Italian (Italiano)
  • Portuguese (Português, Brazilian and European)
  • Xhosa (isiXhosa) – South African african language
  • Zulu (isiZulu) – South African african language

This will help if someone isn’t familiar with English language words on their mobile and are struggling to get MXit to chat with!
Afrikaans, Zulu and Xhosa are three other official languages spoken in South Africa, the country of creation of MXit.

I agree with the statements that the market for Xhosa and Zulu speakers is quite big in South Africa, as I experience a lot of feedback on my mobile wap site ( from native South African language speakers! And it’s quite an exciting new market.

Check out this for a quick language primer 😉
At a time when MXit has reached 5.4 million users, there’s still much more potential left in the company from South Africa. At a solid 10-12K new registrations per day.
