MSN8 becomes more Multilingual

Microsoft lance le browser de MSN 8 en français... ...und andererseits auf Deutsch.

Microsoft says it will begin selling its subscription-based Web browser MSN 8 in German and French language versions on Monday, its latest effort to boost overseas revenues at its loss-making Internet unit. A host of Internet firms, including arch-rival Yahoo, have staked out in Europe a plan to sell subscription services to consumers to diversify beyond the stagnant or slow-growing online advertising market.

MSN 8 comes equipped with a spam e-mail filter, parental controls, digital photo editing software and an enhanced Web browser. Microsoft will charge 5.99 euros (3.7 pounds) per month or 59.99 euros for the year in France and Germany for MSN 8. It charges customers 60 pounds per year for MSN 8 in English and 70 euros in Spanish, the only other versions available in Europe. Microsoft declined to give details on customer uptake in those versions.
