Google launches Arabic Gmail
As part of Google's ongoing efforts to help its users around the world find and organise their information, on Tuesday Google has introduced a Gmail interface in Arabic. Gmail users are now able to use an Arabic language interface for Gmail. This is the most recent in a number of products made available in Hebrew including Google News and a new version of the Google Toolbar.
Gmail users who speak Arabic will benefit from an interface in their native language, more than 2 gigabytes of free storage, and powerful search. Google will continue offering more Gmail storage over time. Gmail also includes other enhancements including free POP access, virus protection and automatic forwarding, and support for most web browsers with a basic HTML version.
Over the past year, Google has continually been enhancing Gmail to make sure it remains a new kind of webmail service that is focused on users, enabling them to easily find the messages they want without worrying about deleting messages to stay within storage limits. In building a better e-mail service, Google also continues to listen to users' feedback and implement their top requested features such as contact groups and vacation auto-responder.
Launching these interfaces demonstrates Google's continued focus on delivering innovations in the user experience. Google has designed these interfaces to expertly handle both "right-to-left" (RTL) languages as well as traditional languages that read left to right. These directionality controls allow for a better compose experience in a RTL language.
