September 18, 2007 Google Reader Goes Beyond English

Google Reader<https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin?hl=en&nui=1&service=reader&continue=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Freader%3Ftab%3Dwy>,
the search company's news site and blog reader, is no longer limited to
English. "As of today, it supports these languages: French, Italian, German,
Spanish, English (UK), Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Japanese, and
Korean," wrote Kevin Systrom, a product manager, on the official
Google blog<http://googleblog.blogspot.com/>
.

Systrom also announced that the company was removing the "Google Labs" label
from the Reader, meaning that it is past the "a bit wobbly" stage (that's
Google's description) and has become a stable, mature product. However, the
Labs label was still on the Reader page as of this afternoon. Perhaps the
memo about maturation got lost in translation. *—Josh Fischman*
