Real estate agents in the greater Washington, D.C., and Baltimore metropolitan area now have the option to display their property listing information via the Internet in 13 languages.

MRIS, one of the largest multiple listing services in the country, announced a new partnership with Immobel, to provide the language service.

In addition to English, listing search results can be displayed to the real estate agents’ customers in Spanish, Brazilian-Portuguese, Italian, French, German, Polish, Russian, Chinese (both traditional and simplified), Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese. Additional languages are planned.

“We saw the need to make the option of language translation technology available to our 58,000 customers, given their widely diverse client base,” said Jeff Jennings, MRIS manager of business development and product management, announcing the contract with Immobel.

“The MRIS market area is home to people from virtually every country. Translation technology greatly expands the MRIS service model,” said Janet Choynowski, Immobel CEO.

MRIS is owned by 25 shareholder Realtor associations spanning most of Maryland, all of Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia and parts of West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
