Moreover, this version has already in the process of internal testing at present. Along with the Chinese, Siri will also be available in Japanese version and Russian version.
The Chinese tech site DoNews claims to have heard from an Apple engineer who’s working on the Chinese-language version of Siri, the clever voice assistant on the iPhone 4S. From this source, it claims that Siri will launch in Chinese next month, and is already undergoing internal testing this month.
The rumor also contends that the Chinese version will only support the standard Mandarin (aka: putonghua) Chinese, which would leave out Cantonese-speaking people, as well as some Taiwan folk who effectively speak in a different dialect.
