China's Baidu Launches Sites for Egypt, Thailand [cio.com]

China's largest search engine, Baidu, has launched two websites for users in Thailand and Egypt, more than a week after the company spoke with a top Chinese government official and declared its intentions to become a top international brand.

Baidu modeled the websites after two of its own popular Chinese products. The site for Thailand [th.hao123.com] is a version of Baidu's hao123.com, which works as a Web directory. The product for Egypt [zhidao.baidu.com.eg] is a question-and-answer service modeled after Baidu Knows.

The search giant previously made a move to expand outside of China, by launching a Japanese search engine in 2007. Earlier this year, the company revealed it was working on a multilanguage platform.

Odd that the Thai site has a prominent Google logo on it.
