YouTube Launches 9 Local Language Sites

YouTube has launched in 9 more countries including, Brazil, France, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, United Kingdom. You could switch between countries by clicking on the national flags at the top right corner.

In the homepage of different countries, you will see localized selected, most viewed, top rated videos. I suppose the statistics are categorized into different countries by following the country you chose when signing up for a YouTube account.

Some of the features such as TestTube and sponsored campaigns are not available in countries outside the US, though it is very likely that YouTube will be launching similar localized campaigns in other countries.

Official announcement should be made during the Google Press Day 2007 when the YouTube founders, Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, will speak for an hour.
