One Hour Translation Twitter Handles Translate Harry Styles's Tweets Into Spanish and Italian


LONDON, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Spanish and Italian fans can now follow @OHT_HarrySP and @OHT_HarryIT
  • The new Twitter handles follow One Hour Translation's successful free Twitter translations during the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games

One Hour Translation, the world's fastest human translation agency, has created new Twitter handles which will translate all of Harry Styles's tweets into Spanish and Italian.

Given his global superstar status not all of Harry Styles's fans speak English. However, the new Twitter handles should appeal to Harry's Spanish and Italian speaking fans by keeping them up to date with his latest comments and Twitter conversations with other celebrities. The Twitter handles will translate all of Harry's tweets from his Twitter handle, @Harry_Styles, which currently has over 20 million followers.

The Twitter translations will be undertaken by One Hour Translation's human translators, of which there are over 15,000, and will happen close to real time. If the handles prove popular, additional Twitter accounts will be set up in other languages for Harry's tweets.

Similar accounts have also been set up for Miley Cyrus - @OHT_MileySP - translating all her tweets in to Spanish and for Justin Timberlake - @OHT_JustinFR - translating all his tweets in to French.  

Harry and his One Direction band mates are set to perform in Italy and Spain in June and July as part of their 'Where We Are' 2014 world stadium tour. The band's latest album, Midnight Memories, has already sold over 80,000 copies in Spain and 120,000 in Italy.  

Commenting on the new Twitter handles, David Shaw, VP of Business Development of One Hour Translation said: "Despite having over 20 million Twitter followers, Harry Styles could surely reach an even greater number of fans if his tweets were available in the native language of those who can't read English. The new Twitter handles will demonstrate how communicating with people in a language they fully understand generates better engagement and understanding."

One Hour Translation recently launched a Twitter hub providing a free, on-demand Twitter translation service in real time during the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. The service saw hundreds of people tweeting at @OHT asking for translations for everything from how to ask for directions in Russian to good luck messages to foreign athletes in their native language.
