First of all, I would like to congratulate your team for the website. It has been very useful for me with trip planning, with thousands of opinions about destinations.Secondly, I would like to let you know that recently I’ve tried to share a comment about my stay in a certain accommodation. But the system sent me back an instant message saying that comments in Catalan were not allowed.The system admits comments in other languages, instead. For example Swedish and Dutch, two languages with a 10 and 24 millions of speakers respectively, which are similar rates to the number of Catalan speakers (about 10 million). So, I think it would be a great deal to include Catalan as a supported language in Tripadvisor services. This would enrich our Tripadvisor community. Also, the company will reach a better consideration in a significant Catalan market, which is very receptive regarding companies that adapt products to the client’s language preferences.Yours sincerely,
