What are the 2014 top languages to watch out for? Meaning, which languages were most used in 2013?

Trending now: The chart below shows the top languages that are currently trending with Lexcelera customers.
Which languages are the economic heavy hitters in the world today?
This week, the Common Sense Advisory published its report on the top languages online.
In their report, they identified the most important languages in terms of:
- The Total Online Population (TOP)
- The World Online Wallet (WOW)
By this measure, 20% of the online population are English speakers, but their purchasing power represents 26% of the world online wallet.
These measures are designed to help you benchmark the size of the economic opportunity represented by the different languages.
In conclusion: “You will need to support a widening variety of languages in just the next couple of years.”
