Teams in 192 countries use Asana to manage their work—and we strive to make Asana the tool that any team around the world can use to maximize clarity and productivity. As a result, we recently launched in French and German and now we’re excited to add Spanish and Portuguese, too. This means that even more teams can work in a way that’s most productive and comfortable to them.

In addition, we’ve made improvements for our customers across the globe to make your experience more intuitive and localized. You can select the day of the week your calendar begins for a more flexible view of your work. When you purchase Asana, Premium and Enterprise customers can now pay in euros or pounds.

As the Asana product and team continue to grow, we’re committed to thinking globally so teams everywhere can effectively manage their work and get better results.

Partnering with over 1,200 universities, they’ve enrolled more than 240,000 students since their launch in 2012! For the Quero Educação product and development team, Asana is one of their most important tools—it’s where they plan and control their product and design backlog and sprints.

“We love Asana’s flexibility. We use a mix of agile best practices, and Asana was easy to set up with our specific processes. We migrated our projects and could start working the next day.”
