    Maybe it is not new, but I found it out only today. Well, maybe it is new. I have three language keyboard, since I type in English, Russian and Hebrew. When I need other language than English, I just switch the language in the language bar in my desktop. Very often I forget to switch back to English and then I type jiberish, while I think that I type in English.
    Today I typed into Google search a word in English, but I had Russian language keyboard layout. Surprisingly, with a jiberish word (Cyrillic letters) I got the right page suggestions!!!! I started experimenting and surprise, Google picks up words, typed in non English keyboard layout! Te same happens when I type words in Russian while I am in English language mode. I get correct Russian results.
    Just wanted to share.

      yes, it's true. You can write Russian words if your keyboard allows you and you google them and get the answer as good as it gets but sometimes very close in meaning. Very powerful beast, Google.

    Yep, it's very fluent in many different languages. The best is combining those with boolean search terms. wink
