US video streaming subscription service Netflix is set to launch in France, the Netherlands and Belgium, according to reports in the Belgian press.

Recruitment is said to be underway for translators in charge of localising the service. The daily newspaper Le Soir, reporting on a story on the website, says the job description leaves no doubts about the European countries Netflix will enter as it is looking for French and Dutch language translators, along with Turkish, Korean and Indian.

As both French and Dutch are spoken in Belgium too, Le Soir anticipates that this country will also be Netflix's target by the end of the year.

The video platform is said to be set to launch in another European country during 2013, and this could well be Germany where its main competitor Lovefilm is already established.

In the US, Netflix offers more than 10,000 feature films and 3,000 TV series for an $8 monthly fee.
