Google Earth in Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Polish, Korean, Arabic, and Czech

Changing Language in Google EarthThe new Google Earth 4.1 beta which was released two days ago has something new which I think is important to highlight. Those of you who speak these languages will now find the ability to use Google Earth in your native language: Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Polish, Korean, Arabic, and Czech. To use Google Earth in another language, simply go to the "Tools->Options->General" page and look for "Language settings". You will have to restart Google Earth after choosing a different language. The screenshot to the right shows what it looks like to make the change.

Google is very savvy about supporting the needs of a global audience. They have an impressive language support capability for all of their applications. I am going to have to consider offering this blog in other languages.

[UPDATE 1730 ET: Google also created versions of the Google Earth web site for each of the new languages which you can see here: Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Polish, Korean, Arabic, and Czech. This via the Google LatLong Blog.]

    What's more important (IMHO) is that GE and GMaps now offer geocoding and route planning (this was available some time ago, but only for city->city) for 5 new countries (Brazil, Portugal, Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic)

    English is the language of the internet. So don't panic. ;-)
