Google Drive, the search giant’s online storage and document, presentation and spreadsheet creation service, is now available in 18 new languages, including Afrikaans, Amharic, Swahili and Zulu.
This brings the total number of languages Drive supports to 65.
The new additions are Afrikaans, Amharic, Basque, Chinese (Hong Kong), Estonian, French (Canadian), Galician, Icelandic, Khmer, Lao, Malaysian, Nepali, Persian, Sinhalese, Spanish (Latin America), Swahili, Urdu and Zulu.
Users can switch between languages at any time from the settings menu in Google Drive. The service allows users to collaborate on documents, spreadsheets or presentations and they will continue to enjoy this functionality even if their Drive is set to a different language than that of the person with whom they’re collaborating.
The new languages also apply to Google Drive for mobile devices.
Last month, Google announced that it was offering users 15GB of free online storage to share between their Drive and Gmail accounts. Previously, users received 10GB for Gmail and 5GB for Drive for free. — (c) 2013 NewsCentral Media
