Foursquare now available in French, Italian, Spanish, German and Japanese

The latest update to location-based social networking app Foursquare is a big one for international users. Foursquare now comes in five more languages: French, Italian, Spanish, German and Japanese. Even the badges have been translated! This is a big deal for Foursquare's business, because they're now getting checkins from users in nearly 200 different countries, and businesses in those countries want to offer deals in the local language.

To change your language on Foursquare, just update the app on your mobile device. Foursquare will auto-detect your device's default language and make the switch automatically. Foursquare's web interface is still all in English, but that's due to go multilingual soon as well.
