Dropbox Announces Interface in Portuguese

The team Dropbox came to São Paulo to announce new to Brazilians: from today, the web interface and file storage service applications in the cloud can be used in Portuguese. According to Dropbox, which already has more than 100 million users worldwide, the number of people who use the service more than doubled in Brazil in 2012.

To announce the translation into Portuguese, Dropbox released an infographic showing the activity of Brazilian service. At Carnival, more than 1 million photos per day were sent through automatic image upload feature, the Camera Upload. And Dropbox is also widely used in universities: more than 13,500 students at the University of São Paulo participated in the Great Space Race, a campaign that led up to 25GB of additional space for two years.

At the press conference, Dropbox officials revealed that Brazilians send 25% more files than the world average. Furthermore, over 90% of files hosted on the service are free. According to them, as the space available in the accounts is limited (each user initially receives 2 GB), users usually do not use Dropbox to share files that violate copyrights.

Dropbox staff said that a new menu will be available for users to track account activity. This menu displays, for example, invitations to share files and recent changes to documents – something like a central notifications. The news should be officially announced soon.

Despite the launch of the Portuguese version, the service will continue to be charged in dollars – currently, you can get 100 GB of additional space for $ 9.99 a month. A Dropbox office in Brazil also should not appear so early: the small group of employees currently working in San Francisco, California, and the first office outside the US should be opened by the end of the year in Ireland.

Applications for Windows, OS X and Android, as well as the web interface, win translation into Portuguese today. The version for iOS will be updated in the coming weeks. Like Dropbox team is small, there are no plans to launch an official app for Windows Phone – the solution for now is to access Dropbox through the browser.
