Ik spreek geen Nederlands, but the roughly 30 million people who do should appreciate this news: social inspiration sensation Pinterest is now available in Dutch.

Pinterest is also now being offered in German, the company announced today. The additions up the total number of supported languages to seven, as the service is already available in English, two versions of Spanish, and two Portuguese dialects.

The language refresh underscores what everybody already knows: People the world round want to pin and repin — in their native tongues, no less.

Launched in 2010, Pinterest users collect virtual products on digital pinboards. The site has exploded in popularity despite having just opened its doors to the public and only recently launching applications for iPad and Android. Pinterest has already attracted more than 20 million members.

The up-and-coming social network still has a long way to go before it catches up to Twitter or Facebook, which are available in 33 and 70-plus languages respectively.
