Vimeo is getting local–at least with languages. Not only is the site now available in Spanish, but the Euro is now available as a payment currency as part of an overall site update offering local language support. Local language support includes access to all navigational elements of the site and automatically detects the users’ native language, making it an easy transition; plus, the new payment type opens up the service to those in Asia and Europe who also want to process their own currency–a great step toward making Vimeo even more accessible as in the future.
