Baidu Wants the World — and It Wants It Now
Baidu revealed that it plans on introducing its search platform in a dozen different foreign languages. Products in Arabic and Thai debuted four months ago, and more will clearly follow.
Is it too late for Baidu? Companies have been successful outside of their home market. Russia’s Yandex has a presence in Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Belarus. Google may not be the leader in China, but it does lead in the world’s second most populous country: India.
