Job opening hints at new languages for Apple's Siri

Apple appears to be trying to teach Siri to speak several new languages

New Apple job openings indicate that the company is working on bringing its Siri voice assistant to lots more languages, including Arabic, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish.

9To5Mac reports that the job listing, which was posed on Apple's website on 134 November, is for a six month internship for candidates that can speak several languages that are not currently available for Siri.

The new employee would be part of "the team responsible for delivering Siri in different parts of the world for an exciting 6 month internship in Cupertino, California."

At present, Siri is available in English, Spanish, French, German, Korean, Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Italian, across the US, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Japan, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland and Taiwan.

Yesterday, we reported that Apple could be planning to bring Siri to Mac OS X 10.9 next year, and that the new operating system is rumoured to be called 'Lynx'.
