eBay drop-off store chain QuikDrop International will begin translating its eBay auctions into Spanish and French beginning next week. The company plans to add Italian, German, Portuguese, Korean, Chinese and Japanese translations by the end of the month.

QuikDrop President Murray Mead said, "By translating our auctions into European and Eastern languages, we send a strong message to the international community of eBay buyers that we appreciate their business and will endeavor to make their experiences with us as seamless as possible. Obviously, the biggest winners will be our customers in the United States that bring us their stuff to sell on eBay."
