SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Scribd, the reading subscription service that offers access to the best ebooks, audiobooks, magazine articles and more, announced today its new localized reading experience for the Mexico market. Now readers in the country can access a diversified catalog that includes over 60,000 Spanish-language titles from top authors and publishers. The service includes access to all of Scribd's content and is available for $8.99 USD a month.
Over the past few years, Scribd has seen a significant increase in readers from Mexico engaging with its digital library of ebooks and audiobooks, which led to the company's decision to build a first-class reading experience in the country. In addition to making several improvements to localize the product experience and enhance content recommendations, the company has established new relationships with publishing partners to diversify the content offering. Partners include leading Spanish-language publishers such as Planeta, Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial, Anagrama, Sexto Piso and El Colegio de México.
"Scribd has a long history of building meaningful relationships with publishers, and we're committed to driving incremental revenue to the publishing ecosystem," said Andrew Weinstein, Vice President of Content Acquisition and Strategy at Scribd. "We know consumers in Mexico value reading as a fundamental tool for personal and professional development. We're proud to have built the most comprehensive digital library of content, and, with our improved local offering, we hope to help readers in Mexico discover new content and continue to expand their knowledge through reading."
The localization efforts for the Mexico market are a key piece of Scribd's larger expansion strategy in Latin America, which represents an enormous opportunity for the company to establish itself as a global reading service and further the company's mission: to change the way the world reads.
