Mobile Google Docs Gets 44 Languages
Google has gone a long way with their Google Docs project since it’s original founding. Moving to HTML-5 and mobile support, users have been able to view and sometimes edit online documents using their mobile devices. Until recently, support for languages other than English hasn’t been entirely available.
Google Docs has updated to support an additional 44 languages for mobile users this week, giving support to more users. The new rollout adds support for mostly Europian and Asian languages including, Arabic, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Filipino, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Gujarati, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kannada, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malayalam, Marathi, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Portugal), Portuguese (Brazil), Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese.
Editing functionality is still limited to iOS 3.0 and above or Android 2.2 (Froyo) and above. Users of older or less supported platforms may still be able to view docs.
At this time, language support is the only new feature added to mobile Google Docs in this update.
