Today, Opera released Opera.com in Traditional Chinese. All Opera.com visitors who have Traditional Chinese set as their browser language will be automatically redirected to the native language site. These users are able to enjoy receiving important product and support information from Opera.com, social networking in the My Opera online community, and reading news, sports and entertainment content from portal.opera.com in their preferred language.

Opera has strong growth in Taiwan and Hong Kong, where people use Traditional Chinese. The growth in the number of unique users of the Opera Mini mobile web browser has doubled since June 2010. Users have also shown enthusiasm in using Opera on desktop computers to enjoy a customized, fast, and safe web surfing experience. To help people learn more about Opera's products easily, Opera.com now provides localized content to more than 30 million Traditional Chinese users around the world. The localization of Opera.com is a joint effort between Opera employees, Opera Campus Crew student volunteers, and Opera fans in Taiwan.
