In the movie world, it is all pretty clear-cut. No matter what part of the world someone is from, if you speak slowly and clearly enough, that person will understand English – regardless of the fact that he may have never come across the language. In the real and software world, things are not like that. If someone does not understand English, you must provide support for whatever language that person speaks.

When Adobe Reader for Android was rolled out to the Android Market (that was back in June), it provided support for just one language. The one language that Adobe Reader for Android provided support for was, you guessed it, English. As of this week Adobe Reader for Android provides support for 5 additional languages.

In total, Adobe Reader for Android now provides support for 6 languages. These languages are:
1 - English
2 - French
3 - German
4 - Italian
5 - Spanish
6 - Dutch

If you would like to interact with files in one of these languages, you must get Adobe Reader for Android v 9.0.2. “It’s easy and just a few clicks away to download (click from your Android device) this free update in your own language from your Android phone. Once the update is installed, Adobe Reader adopts the current language settings of your smart phone for any of the supported languages. We hope today’s update will make mobile reading of PDF files that much more enjoyable for more of our users around the globe,” commented Aman Deep Nagpal, Senior Product Manager, Acrobat Solutions.

In related news, it must be said that popular video sharing site YouTube recently extended its language support as well. YouTube recently added language support for Croatian, Filipino, Serbian and Slovak. YouTube now provides support for a total of 28 languages and as Product Manager Brian Truong explained, the plan is to extend language support to cover a total of 40 languages by the end of the year. To put it in other words, YouTube plans to provide support for 40 languages by the end of 2010.
