As I understand it, they speak a lot of english in India. If it's printed in English, Google will pick it up for news. For instance, Google has referred me to English language news from Iran, pretty cool.

India was formerly a British colony. English is a significant language in that country.

Changed the ".com" into ".de", so you get [news.google.de...]

This will work

India has more English-speakers than almost any "English-speaking" country.

I've heard it rated the second largest English-speaking country after the USA.

So, Google News for India is a natural.

the address is relative not absolute.

I think whomever was constructing the link never thought it would be a problem, as the page i just seen was referencing sub-sub-sub-directory level page

Hmm, I wonder what's up with that? Seems to have been a test rather, or is anybody able to pull up german news?

Unfortunately none of the above urls yield any sustained positives... So I am still waiting for German news in German!

PS: As Google News (US) got a webby award, isn't it time to officially declare the beta testing over? Just a thought

That's Krishna Bharat. He was the one that started the whole project.

.. he was frustrated by the time it took to search for news of one's interest and decided to write a programme that would automate the process. Though created for his personal use, news of the software leaked to colleagues at Google - and soon the management decided to try it out on a big scale.
(source Indian brain behind world's first`automated' news site [hinduonnet.com])

To see the whole Google News team, click here [google.com].

BTW, didn't see any German news so far from this PC in Japan.

The URL i gave before don't work for me too anymore, and I get English content too at [news.google.de...] (from Holland)

The url that palace4all gave works for me but I won't think it's strange when this URL don't work too anymore in a while. Guess we'll just have to wait till the testing is over...

I've heard it rated the second largest English-speaking country after the USA.

I would not be surprised if India has the largest english speaking population. The reporting from there is so skewed that the actual numbers from there take a few decades to get reported. In a recent trip to India, I was surprised that I found no soul who does not speak English. And I dealt with a wide spectrum of people from office boys, bartenders, servants to CEO level. This was a quite a contrast to my experience in India a few years back when it was common to find people who does not understand English. A lot changed in India for good in the last few years is what I came back with ..

The above is more significant when you compare it to the fact, I could easily find several spanish or other language speaking people in the US who does not understand A B C of English!

palace4all:

Great url hacking@!

I really got exited to find out that google news in Dutch also was already partially translated:

[news.google.nl...]

It probably won't mean as much as the german version, logo's were not available and I think we still have to wait a bit in the Netherlands... :-)
