Getting a 9 language Beta out the door so people can use it…

by oneafrikan on September 13, 2007

It feels kinda strange ‘cos we’ve just deployed another version of Kindo which does some good under the hood stuff, so in a cathartic sense it feels good to write about it now, and on the other hand it’s good to let people know where are.

Kindo is in private beta right now, which means that it’s not open for everyone (if you want the lowdown, please sign up at http://www.kindo.com and we’ll add you to the whitelist)

Kindo is where families get together, build their tree and grow. It’s about staying in touch with your loved ones, and finding out what they’re up to. Right now you can build your own family tree, decorate your profile with personal details, and invite your family members to join in – but there’s much more to come.

Improvements we’ve made so far:
You should experience faster page loading.
Kindo is in 9 languages, and we’re working on another 4.

Problems we’ve experienced:
Sending email in 9 languages isn’t as easy as it may seem – this is mainly due to accented characters in languages like Spanish and Swedish.

If you’d like to know more about what we’re up to, these blog posts may be interesting:

Cool – many more miles to go, but it feels good to have done the first 1.5 ;-)
