What about books in other languages?
We want Google Book Search to include books from all the world's languages and cultures. All the prestigious libraries with which we are working have books in many different languages and we are not limiting our scanning to English-language books. We are currently working with publishers from many countries around the world to include their books in the Partner Programme and there are already many foreign-language versions of Google Book Search. See, for example, http://livres.google.fr.
