Turkcell, the largest mobile phone carrier in Turkey, launched a new foursquare partner badge today, Turkcell 4 Çeker. It happens to coincide with another surprise for Turkey: the foursquare app and website are now available in Turkish.
To earn the badge, users must follow Turkcell on foursquare and check in at four locations they’ve recommended. The unlock text reads:
Tebrikler! Gördük ki sen de Turkcell 3G kadar hızlıymışsın! Bol bol gezdiğin, gezdiğin yerleri de hemen paylaştığın için bu rozeti hakkını vererek kazandın. Hayatı paylaşmaya devam et!
Turkcell is also offering a 30% discount on accessories when foursquare users check in at select stores.
A team of Turkish superusers worked to translate text in the app and website for foursquare. Users can switch languages on the website by clicking the current language name in the footer, then choosing their desired language from the pop-up box. In the mobile apps, the language is determined by the phone’s primary language.
What do you think of the badge?
