Anchor web: Now localized for more creators around the world

We’re making it easier for anyone to create and manage their podcast in their own language

One of our biggest goals is to ensure that creators everywhere have access to all the robust tools and features Anchor has to offer. And while creators around the world have been able to record, host, and grow their podcast on our platform, Anchor on web hasn’t always been available to everyone in their native language. But today we’re changing that in a big way, as part of our mission to empower all creators: Anchor web is now available in 35 languages, so millions more people around the world can easily create and manage their podcasts in their own language—right from their dashboard.

How it works: 1. Sign up. To get started, let us know you're interested by answering a few questions. 2. Upload on Anchor. Once approved, click 'New episode' and 'Quick upload' to add a video file. 3. View on Spotify. Once it's published, your video episode will live directly in your Spotify catalog.

Here are the languages we’re adding:

  • Bulgarian
  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Chinese (Traditional)
  • Czech
  • Danish
  • Dutch
  • Estonian
  • Finnish
  • French (Canada)
  • French (France)
  • German
  • Greek
  • Hindi
  • Hungarian
  • Indonesian  
  • Italian
  • Japanese  
  • Korean  
  • Latvian
  • Lithuanian
  • Malay
  • Norwegian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese (Brazil)
  • Portuguese (Portugal)
  • Romanian
  • Slovak
  • Slovenian
  • Spanish (Latin America)
  • Spanish (Spain)
  • Swedish
  • Thai
  • Turkish
  • Vietnamese

Anchor on web not only makes it easier for podcasters to create and manage all aspects of their show in one place, but also access to game-changing tools and features.

  • Quick Upload: Want to publish your episodes to Spotify faster than ever? Now you can! Once you have a completed audio file, just go to your Anchor dashboard, click ‘New episode,’ then ‘Quick Upload.’

  • Q&A and Polls: Add a personal touch—and new levels of interactivity—to every episode with Q&A and Polls. Invite your fans to the conversation like never before, by letting them express their opinions right from your episodes on Spotify.

  • Podcast Subscriptions: The easiest way for all creators to offer paid content—and for listeners to directly support and enjoy your work. Podcast Subscriptions provide a more predictable, stable source of revenue that creators control while engaging deeply with loyal fans.

  • Robust analytics: Get Spotify-powered insights and personalized information on your podcast's performance—including total plays, estimated audience size, unique listeners, plays per episode, top 10 episodes, listener demographics, and much more.
