Calling on International Beta Testers!

We know that many of you have been asking for new languages – well the time has come!  We are making a new beta on Vlingo for BlackBerry for French, German, Italian and Spanish. Very exciting, but we need your help to make sure we launch the best possible product.

What We Need?

  • People who are native French, German, Italian and Spanish speakers
  • It’s okay if you were born somewhere else, or if you live somewhere else now as long as you’re fluent

How You Can Help?

  • Visit the AppWorld link below from your mobile device to download the beta

Download the Beta at AppWorld

  • After that, just use Vlingo…
    • By using text, email, web search, social updates and more you help Vlingo create more accurate voice-to-text applications
    • By using SafeReader, you help us read messages naturally in your native language

What’s In It For You?

  • FREE usage of our paid features for the duration of the beta
  • Eternal appreciation from your buddies at Vlingo
  • Tell your friends and earn their thanks for helping bring Vlingo to your language

Please Read!

  • SafeReader plays new messages and calendar event reminders as they arrive.
  • To stop playing the current message, press the red END key.
  • To stop playing all messages say, “Stop SafeReader.”
  • To view more options go to Menu->Options

For the BETA: SafeReader will temporarily collect message and event reminders to help us tune our system.   If you do not want this data collected please turn off the feature and do not use it.

Thanks in advance for any help you can spare.  We look forward to bringing awesome new languages to our BlackBerry application!

    Hi there!

    Any chance for latvian language? I am sure that It is simpler than german!

    I am now planning to get the new HTC desire HD, so I would like to help bring it to Latvian as well.

    Is it possible? how can I help?

    • TJ

      One step at a time, although we appreciate the offer. We’ll let everyone know as we expand to new languages. Best bet is to follow us on Twitter @Vlingo or for the updates.

  • Giuseppe

    I look forward to help with the German language on Android.
    I loved it on symbian…

  • Ste

    All italian Android user’s are waiting for your transation! You’re doing an awesome work! Keep on rocking!

    • TJ

      Sweet. Thanks. We really appreciate it. It’s not easy to adapt to new languages. So we essentially have to build our language models from scratch with each new one. We’re churning them out as quickly as we can, while still maintaining our standards of accuracy and speed. Thanks for following us, though. We’ll let you know as these get rolled out. Cheers!

  • Ron

    Very good app for saver driving..!

    I hope you wil plan the Dutch language too. It’s spoken in many country’s like Belgium, Curacao, Aruba, South Africa, Indonesia and the Netherlands.

    Seems to work fine – when I can get it to work. I have a BB Torch 9800, but the convenience key seldom opens Vlingo. Every now and then it does. Has anyone had a similar experience?

    • TJ

      Hey there. Sorry you’re having trouble. On our support site,, we have FAQ to help answer most of your questions. If you have one you don’t see in there, you can open a support ticket and our team will get back to you to help troubleshoot. Check it out, and hopefully we can get that side key working 100%.

  • Luis

    i’d like to know if after the beta period ends all this languages will be added to the english version or will keep being a sepparate version.

    I’d love to have both english and spanish in the same version.

  • Aurelia Pradel

    Hello I possess N97 and I installed the beta version in French, but no French in the languages!
    It is very it’s a pity for us other because the i phone already possesses a software as that this in French version!
    Has when the version in French?

    • TJ

      Stay tuned, Aureilia. I can’t offer up exact dates, but I can tell you that French will be here very soon for Nokia.

  • ItsMeReneeee

    It’s a pitty the Dutch language is left out. Demographically that would be the smart thing to do. Lot’s of willing testers in the Netherlands for you! So if you decide to support Dutch, I’ll be the first in line to help! So please!!!!!!
