Bonjour! Quirky goes French with Auchan
Posted ago by Nathaniel
We’ve been working hard behind the scenes over the last couple months to frenchify the Quirky site and experience for a whole new community of inventors across the Atlantic. Today, we are proud to announce that Quirky and Auchan have officially launched Quirky in France! New community members and ideas are already flowing through our French language site, fr.quirky.com.
What does this mean for you, our English-speaking community? Well, we’re officially in another giant retailer! That’s great news for all you influencers out there whose products will be on Auchan store shelves. As for ideas submitted to fr.quirky.com, they won’t be visible in on the English language Quirky.com/invent page. This keeps your idea scroll clean and discernible, preventing confusion and maximizing visibility across the respective languages.
On a related note, anyone with an existing Quirky account will not be able to login to fr.quirky.com. We’ve done this to prevent cross locale submissions, which would be unfair to everyone involved. As for the inevitable concern regarding similar submissions: our standard policy will apply for every submission to fr.quirky.com. If you need more information, please refer to our policy in the Quirky forums.
We’ll be evaluating the top ideas submitted to fr.quirky.com on October 31st, in what will be the first of many French Evals to come. Stay tuned for updates as we get closer to the event.
