Filter Search Results By Language

Based on signup trends, 36% of Hootsuite’s Top 10 user signups by Country come from non-English speaking nations – making for a diverse mix of cultures and languages. With that in mind, we’ve prepared a HootTip for international and multilingual users. Learn how to filter your search results by language.

Here’s How

Simply add a language search parameter (listed below) to the end of your search. With over 20 languages to choose from, it’s easy to find results for #hashtags, @handles and keywords in your language.


This search parameter can be tacked on to any of Hootsuite’s search features: Search Streams, Keyword Tracking Streams and Quick Search.
