Ebay's Craigslist in China

Reid Barrett writes:

Ebay has launched an international answer to Craigslist. Unlike Craigslist, whose sites outside the US are still in English, Kijiji will be in the local language. Its Chinese city sites are in Chinese.

Kijiji means 'village' in Swahili but in English it means 'poor marketing value'.
