Yesterday we were reporting that Microsoft’s IE9 (Internet Explorer 9) web browser provides support for more languages than the competition. If IE9 provided support for 40 languages when it was rolled out to the public as a final version this March, support for an additional 53 languages has been added, which means that IE9 now provides support for a grand total of 93 languages.

That is more than what the competition has to offer. Firefox 4 provides support for 86 languages, Chrome 11 for 45 languages, Opera 11 for 44 languages, and Apple’s Safari provides support for a mere 16 languages.

Among the 53 new languages that IE9 has to offer, there are 11 Indian languages. The following ones: Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Konkani, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu. This means that Indian users who were on the English version of IE9 can now use the browser in their favorite Indian language.

They can get IE9 in the language of their choice straight from Microsoft, from the IE9 Worldwide Download page here.
If they are on a on a multilingual version of Windows and have IE9 in English, they can get a language pack and enjoy IE9 in the Indian language of their choice. Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 users can find the appropriate language pack here while windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 users can get the appropriate language pack here.

What about Windows XP, you ask? IE9 does not provide support for the old Windows XP operating system. It works with Vista and Windows 7, not with XP. Rumor on the web has it support for Vista will be dropped as well with the upcoming IE10 (Internet Explorer 10).

If you’re interested in finding out precisely what languages IE9 provides support for, a detailed list is available below. The red ones are the 40 languages IE9 already provided support for, the blue ones are the new languages IE9 supports.
