LinkedIn Tip of the Week: Discover the importance of LinkedIn language versions

LinkedIn is available in an ever increasing number of languages. You can browse the site in any of the 24 currently supported languages and - more importantly - you can create versions of your profile in those languages as well.

Choosing the right language(s) for your profile is more important that you may realize.

You might think that one language version is enough, i.e. if you're from Sweden you'll probably opt for Swedish as your only language version. However, consider the fact that many people use English as their preferred language on LinkedIn and many searches by recruiters and business contacts are performed in English in addition to their native languages.

Also, if you have more that one language version, visitors to your profile will automatically be shown the version that matches their current user interface settings. This also underlines the importance of keeping all your language versions up-to-date.

Did you know that MSI offer LinkedIn makeovers in several languages?
