Amazon.com Inc. said Thursday that it has launched its Kindle e-book store in Germany, bolstering a catalog of German-language books that it had already offered to customers of its U.S. and U.K. websites.
The store launched with more than 25,000 German-language e-books, more than the 14,515 available on the U.S. site. The company says it is the first non-English-language Kindle Store that it has launched internationally.
In the U.S. and U.K. stores, Amazon also offers books in Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese.
