Google.co.uk in Greek
Now that I have moved outside the UK I have more of an interest than I used to in the successful localisation of products. I came across a strange one I wasn't expecting the other day. I am doing some research on search in the UK, so have been specifically requesting google.co.uk. However, because I was in an internet cafe using a Greek installation of Firefox I got this page - Google.co.uk in Greek.
Firstly I was surprised that there even was a version of the .co.uk flavoured Google search homepage in Greek. What was interesting though was that they chose to serve me the Greek language version based on I guess, either my IP or my browser's referrer string, or a combination of the two, when I was logged in to my very English (UK) Google account.
