It looks like, at this time, imgflip is strictly English. If you are in a country that has a different language, this is a golden opportunity for an investor to create their own meme site specifically for that language. You may be able to even license the imgflip brand, and run an imgflip Espanol, or Italian, or Deutsche, or whatever. It would get high usage from not only those native speakers, but also from students learning that language.

You are probably right about that. Definitely an investment opportunity for the webset. I don't have that kind of capitol, so I'll just watch and wait, I guess

Work out a business plan. You could probably start with imgflip's service provider. It should be a language with a lot of users. Spanish, Arabic, or Chinese would have the largest audiences, but that shouldn't keep other languages out. In fact, if your home country is the only one that speaks that language, you may already have a built in market. I would think, say, Croatia, for example, would want to grab on to the meme band wagon. I know I've seen a lot of memes in Croat, French, and other languages.

I only speak and read in English, so for me to start a site in a language foreign to me would add to the difficulty of investing in, promoting and operating a imgflip off shoot. Another idea may be to incorporate a translation sub routine into the program so that when I am sitting in upstate New York, everything appears in English, even though it was originally typed in something else. Likewise if I was sitting in Paris everything would automatically be translated into French, or German, or whatever

Your better off learning a second language and running to a country that speaks it to do this. Although I'm sure that some of our international subscribers might pay attention if they're reading this thread.

Here's four panels to a German comic that was extremely popular after the war. The girl is a gold digger. Looking for her millionaire husband in a country recovering from a destructive war. Use Google Translate or Babelfish, or any other translation program and translate them all. DudefromEurope translated one because he speaks English so well. I tried ln a few dozen and had a German speaking friend of mine attempt to translate. While translation of words alone are fine, it fails in idiom and culture. I noticed that with dealing with the Croat language. Don't ask, I don't speak it, nor French, not Arabic, and damn little Spanish. An auto translation program like that most likely will not be ready in my lifetime. Try to translate these, you'll see that you not only have to translate into English, but then into proper English. If you've heard the Pennsylvania Dutch speak English, you'll have a glimmer of what I mean. Add in local idiom, and you'll really scratch your head.

My recommendation: learn Spanish because that has a large worldwide market, but also partner with someone that grew up speaking and understanding the language. Work out a business plan, then seek out a venture capitalist to invest. Also, have a good, bilingual lawyer to help. To start out the business, you can easily utilize current memes, translate them into Spanish. A lot more to do, but worth it.
