Tony Chor, the Group Program Manager for the IE Team has posted that Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP has been released in five new languages: German, Japanese, French, Spanish, and Finnish. They are available from today on the IE website.

As with the English version, the localized downloads are available a few weeks ahead of distribution via Automatic Updates. German, French, Spanish and Finnish users should be prepared for AU distribution by mid-November. Japanese AU distribution will begin this spring.

IE7 is not very secure and after using IE7, my computer is not working right. Security alter by itself. After you install IE7 and using it for a couple times or a couple days, things works dandy. After while, you can't do "View Source" any more...

Been using IE7, betas, RC and final, both in English and Spanish, for months, and this has never happened to me.

Clear your temporary internet cache to fix the view files thing.

Please backup your claims instead of spewing out garbage, and I mean firm evidence, none of that Fireborg nonsense. Plus, that stupid popup flaw where it claims to 'spoof' the address does not count.

And now all FF users will vome in and say that FF was available in all possible languages from day 1 ! :lol:

Actually, that is a good point... IE7 has been in development for all this time and yet they do the localization after it's out? You'd think with the amount of money Microsoft has behind them, they'd be a little more organized than several scattered open source developers/contributors.

Not if they were rushing to beat Firefox 2.0 release; Anyhow, too bad for those that must use MSIE (for mission critical objectives); personally I (we) never program for, or use MSIE because it's just so old-fashioned (like Netscape) ;P

I was waiting for the spanish release. But when I attempted to install it, it said that my system language didn't match the language of the app I was trying to install.

My PC came with windows in spanish, although I'm certain that it was just MCE2005 in english with some MUI thing. It's a dell. Since I bought it in Spanish, I was sure that I should always install things in spanish, since I dont think dell expect their customers to even know what MUI is.

What should I do to install IE7 in Spanish?
I don't care using the english version, I use FF in English. Anyway, I dont see a reason why I shouldn't be able to do so.
