Commenting on the multilingual app launch, ixigo CEO & Co-Founder, Aloke Bajpai said - “A significant proportion of our train users are more comfortable using their mother tongue for train information search & discovery and what better time to make this announcement than the Republic Day. We anticipate that the Indian online user base will touch 500 million by next year, making it absolutely essential that mass-market apps work in regional languages. We want to thank Reverie Language Technologies for helping out with these language localizations.”


Apart from being available in multiple new languages, the ixigo trains app has also recently unveiled many other new features. For instance, the app picks up your upcoming train trips automatically and prompts you right in time to book a taxi ride to the railway station.
