Portuguese is next in line and they are still developing it so I think Chinese will be a while...

I think Chinese is a bit more difficult to develop because of the characters. I would do it the same way. I would go by language groups.

Why would it be hard? It's actually quite easy to type out the characters (called hanzi, actually). Besides, they would teach pinyin before hanzi. :)

actually, it is better to learn the characters first, because you don't walk around china seeing pinyin. The characters (汉字)should be learned in collaboration with the characters and meaning. You should learn them all at the same time (时候).

Chinese is so much more useful than japanese, I can't believe Japanese has more votes.

Chinese is now soundly ahead in the Facebook poll. I hope they add it for English speakers soon.
