“Innovation is the key driver for our product development in order to make Yahoo! relevant to the next 200 million Indians that will come online in the next few years. This will add value and excitement for our users and advertisers,” said George Zacharias, Managing Director, Yahoo! India.

He further said, “This localisation of the Yahoo! India portal will revolutionise user experience and invite more users to access information on a daily basis for news, reviews and events happening around them. We want to spread to more Indian users and make it a large locality of users logging in to Yahoo.com.”

In order to access content in regional languages, users first have to long in to Yahoo.co.in and then click on the regional language buttons on the top navigation bar of the site to access the language they want. Users can also access their site by adding the language name to the URL, for example, in.hindi.yahoo.com, in.kannada.yahoo.com, etc.

Yahoo! India also announced an update on their popular Yahoo! Messenger Indichat module, which can now facilitate chatting in nine regional languages from three languages earlier. The Yahoo!
