Audible has just launched Audible Latino, an integrated, multicultural destination for U.S. Hispanic customers to access a robust content catalog of Spanish-language and culturally relevant English-language spoken word content. In order to draw attention to the new portal, the company has just attained the entire Harry Potter series written by J.K. Rowling in Spanish, performed by acclaimed Puerto Rican artist and Actor, Carlos Ponce. Produced by Audible and Pottermore Publishing, Harry Potter y La Piedra Filosofal releases today on Audible, with the subsequent six Spanish-Language titles available for pre-order with release dates later in 2019.
This is not the first time that Audible has segmented their audiobook service to appeal towards specific demographics. They have a series of dedicated portals for dog lovers, romance and alternatives to English, such as Chinese and French.
