Nice. Each time you guys do this, the world seems a little smaller.
mm...nice link to memorize the national flags of 85 countries ;)
I'm still surprised you've done Malta (300k pop) before Croatia (3mill+ pop).
BTW, If I may ask, who did the translation for Malta? It was kinda funny how "top" IT companies here didn't notice it until months after it was launched, and there aren't many Maltese speaking people outside of Malta.
Elmer Fudd was always my favorite ;)
GoogleGuy wrote "woohoo"
Hmm - not a UK-English expression.
Perhaps we desperately need a www.google.us for such 'extrovert' expressions of emotion that are definitely alien to the English Mother Tongue
(which is firmly in the English Mother cheek)....
ta, DerekH. ;)
Hey GoogleGuy please can you tell me when the Czechs will have their own Google site?
Currently we have Serch in Czech however the .cz is taken by a third party. :(
The flags are nice, but the Swiss flag is wrong! :(
Swiss flag is one of the few national flags that are exclusively made as a square, not rectangle allowed!
I love the way those folks across the pond add all those quaint little local colloquiallisms onto the American language.
|Any Slovak speakers here? |
Your Woohoo! in Slovak is something like "ejchuchú!" or "bisťu!".
well done G and crew...
and "woohoo" is perfectly understandable in the UK...
Another Slovak here. We've beaten the Czechs yeah! :))))
Nice job GoogleGuy anyway, also noticed you took care about hungarian minority at [google.sk...] ;)
Ale ne Cesky byl privni :)
Ok so I am learning Czech give me a few more years and i will be fluent :)
Jedno Pivo pro Google a botom jeden Becherovka nebo slilovice - (That would cause google to dance) :)
Czechs already have the language we just don't have a Google domain in Czech :(

well I do not speak Czech but I am the Prague office now. The Czech Rep has got a pop of 10 million and the Slovak Rep. 5 mln. Czech would be a bigger market.
We are #1 for our search terms here in czech so google.cz would be nice for more traffic
Wow small world I'm in prague too, been here for a year now great place.
Was in Slovakia skiing last winter also very nice.
Cough, back to the subject---
Wouldbe nice to have Czech Site .cz
Lasko, only word in that phrase I understand is pivo, but I think it is enough to survive. :)

With the IPO believed to generate $15-25 bn, I am sure Google will find a solution to this problem pretty soon....

Congrats GG! And congrats Slovak surfers. One more step forward towards the goal of making Google a truly universal search engine.
The Scandinavian languages (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Faroese, Icelandic) are closely enough related to often make it hugely relevant to search in two or more Scandinavian languages at the same time for a search phrase. Is the same true of the Czech and Slovak languages?
And would it be a real help if such combined searches were an option on Google's front page and not always had to be arranged in the preferences?
I'm not sure that I completely understand the point of making a special page for the Hungarian minority in Slovakia. I believe that the diminutive German minority in Denmark and the slightly larger Danish minority in Germany have their needs served well with google.de and google.dk. Can someone explain this to me?

I'd say because google.hu is also still taken by third party...
I see [google.co.hu...]
I'm slovak native speaker too. translation is full of grammatical errors. I'm not sure if it was made by native speaker. Google should be more careful when choosing translators
NFFC deserves a Google paycheck for promoting Google better than Google Guy...
|I'm slovak native speaker too. translation is full of grammatical errors. |
I didn't notice any grammatical but semantic errors. I don't understand why searching in Directory has been translated as "Hlavné vyhľadávanie" which means "Main search" - that's irrelevant and confusing IMHO. It should be something like "Kategórie" . I can review whole translation if guys from Google were interested.
Google Guy, I'm also interested what will happen to google.cz domain ...?
And yes, slovak translation is really bad.

See song 2 by blur ;)
You guys are lucky...
I'm in a remote East European country called Belarus and I get really envious of our slavic brothers in Slovakia and Czech Republic who seem to enjoy all niceties of civilized life, example being separate national google services!
When is Google going to steer their eyes in Belarus' direction?

WebmasterFisherman, you might want to visit this page:
<added>I have just signed up as a translator. I think it might be a good idea to do so too for those members who have expressed dissatisfaction with the translations in their native languages.</added>
Well according to that page Czech should already be online.
