Gmail in 37 Languages

[Updated Feb 20, 11.22] It's Back! This is freaky :D
[Updated Feb 20] Hey, the Malay option is gone! gasp! this is not fair, Google is just testing out the languages or was it launched already? Hmmm....

Gmail introduced 37 languages for its new version interface starting February 13. The languages includes popular Asian languages such as Malay, Bahasa Indonesia, Tagalog, Thai, Chinese and Hindi. Naturally I'd be waiting for Tamil soon.

This is the Malay interface, the terms and flow of the language is good, in all the translation is very good.

GMail drives me crazy...it's such a convuluted exasperating experience compared to just checking my regular email.

I look at my Gmail about once every two months.

You can just use BabelFish to translate anything anyway. I love it. I am an instant polyglot able to converse in dozens of languages.
You can actually tutor yourself..I think that it is a miraculous invention.
