Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) RTW (release to web) has been made available for download for quite some time now, and if you did not already get it, then Microsoft will make sure you will give up on IE6 and IE7 soon. Just to make the offer a bit more alluring, the Redmond-based software developer is now announcing that IE8 comes with support for 18 additional languages, with 20 new languages in the works. With this recent addition Internet Explorer 8 is available in 43 different languages (number which will soon increase to 63).

The 18 new languages included in Internet Explorer 8 are: Bulgarian, Bosnian (Cyrillic), Bosnian (Latin), Catalan, Croatian, Estonian, Hindi, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Romanian, Serbian (Cyrillic), Serbian (Latin), Slovakian, Slovenian, Thai, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese. The language packs are available for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008.


This is on top of the language support already provided by Internet Explorer 8: Arabic, Chinese (Traditional, Simplified and Hong Kong), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese (Brazil and Portugal), Polish, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

“If you had already installed Internet Explorer 8 in English and you had an underlying Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 operating system in any of the above languages, you can experience localized Internet Explorer 8 by installing the Internet Explorer 8 Language pack that matches your operating system language(s). Users who have more than one Language pack installed on their machine could benefit from installing Language packs as well,” explains International Program Manager, Vishwac Sena Kannan.

In the future the Internet Explorer development team plans to provide support for the following languages as well: Albanian, Assamese, Basque, Bengali (Bangladesh), Bengali (India), Gujarati, Indonesian, Kannada, Kazakh, Konkani, Kyrgyz, Malay (Brunei Darussalam), Malay (Malaysia), Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, Uzbek (Latin).
