Microsoft today revealed in a blog post that Windows Phone 7 Mango will support 17 additional languages when it launches later this year. The new languages include: Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Swedish. These are in addition to the five languages that WP7 already supports. In addition to the new languages, Mango will support 20 new keyboard layouts to match the new languages. Mango will also increase the number of countries in which WP7 users can purchase applications from the Marketplace by 35. Microsoft said it continues to work on support for more languages and keyboards, and will improve upon those that it already offers over time. Not all languages and all keyboards will be available on all devices, as it will depend on manufacturer, carrier, and the local market in which the device is sold.
