LONDON, Dec. 13, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the successful launch of its iPhone app in September, Regus, the world's leader in workplace solutions, is helping more business professionals work flexibly by releasing a free, multiple-language iPhone app.

French, Italian, German, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese and Simplified Chinese have been added to the English version, which has been downloaded thousands of times around the globe.

"By breaking the language barrier to business, we are giving an increasingly mobile international workforce the support they need to work on-the-go," said Mark Dixon, CEO of Regus. "The Regus iPhone app provides the multi-language support business users need to find a suitable business centre where they can work flexibly and productively whenever or wherever they want."

When users download the free Regus iPhone app from Apple's iTunes, the program's user interface (UI) is displayed in their device's default language.

Designed and built by Wavana Interactive, the application enables professionals to search Regus' global network to locate centres to suit their business needs.

Search – Users can easily locate their nearest Regus centre on the go using GPS (including filtering by facilities), locate it on a map and get turn by turn directions.
