Introducing: Tom's Hardware Finland. Game On!

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 17 comments

Tom's Hardware's been around for nearly a decade and a half now, with worldwide reach and multilingual translations. Now we're expanding to the Nordic countries with the launch of Tom's Hardware Finland.

Bestofmedia has signed a licensing deal with AfterDawn to produce and translate Tom's Hardware content and publish it on Hardware.fi.

Petteri Pyyny, CEO of AfterDawn Oy, said, "With Tom's Hardware focusing on PC technology and hardware and AfterDawn.com focusing on digital entertainment technologies, we believe we can effectively cross-promote both properties in Nordic countries, delivering our readers a more complete take on latest technology news and reviews."

There are plans to expand Tom's hardware into Sweden, Norway and Denmark by end of 2010. The team is currently looking for tech-oriented people for translation work, so let them know if you fit the bill.

Besides the language difference, you'll notice that the Finnish site has a different layout from the English site. We welcome any feedback you guys may have relating to which elements of the site you prefer.

    Personal preference but the tom's 'original' flavor is better than the Finnish one.. At least on the layout front!

    I speak french, but I don't use the french website. I much prefer this community! It's great for people who don't speak english though.
