Twitter has today added beta support for Greek, Basque, and Czech, upping the number of languages the information network carries to 33.

Members can switch their language in settings menu and tweet in the dialect of their choosing.

The three languages added are among the top six most-requested languages since Twitter introduced its Translation Center in 2011. The company added support for Ukrainian and Catalan, two of the other top six, in early July.

Each of the translated languages comes courtesy of Twitter’s 500,0000-person volunteer community that works to help the company meet the communication needs of its expanding user base.

The new languages are also being introduced during the Olympic games, which means people of Greece and the citizens of the Czech Republic, along with those Basque-speaking folks in Spain and France, can now cheer on their national heroes and favorite athletes in their native tongues.
