The PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), have announced that the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) 3.0 are now available in nine languages.

“It’s important that organizations around the globe have the resources they need to protect card data,” said Bob Russo, general manager, PCI Security Standards Council. “We’re happy to make the PCI Standards available in a number of languages to assist organizations as they work to make payment security part of their business-as-usual practices.”

PCI DSS and PA-DSS 3.0 were published in November 2013, with updates made based on feedback from the Council’s global constituents and response to market needs.

Over 50% of this feedback came from outside of the U.S., emphasizing the Council’s active international membership base.

The PCI SSC website supports translated pages and PCI materials including the new PCI DSS v3.0 and PA-DSS v3.0 in the following languages:

  • Chinese
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Spanish

“We continue to be encouraged by the growing participation from global stakeholders in PCI Standards development, said Jeremy King, international director, PCI Security Standards Council. “We’re optimistic that these translations will increase awareness and adoption of the standards and drive improved payment security.”
