When we first introduced Voyager, Google Earth’s new storytelling feature, we wanted to inspire explorers everywhere with rich stories and information to help them learn more about the planet. Since that day in April, users have gone to the Great Barrier Reef to see the effects of coral bleaching; set sail from Norway with Viking sailors; and walked in the footsteps of the Fab Four.

Every week, we publish fresh stories from around the planet. Starting today, these stories are now available in seven additional languages: French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Spanish and Portuguese.

Making this content available in multiple languages (with more to come) was an important milestone to us. Google Earth is the definition of a global product accessible by people from every corner of the planet, and we want to make sure that users everywhere can explore both their own backyard and the world at large in their native tongue. Here are a few examples of the stories you’ll find:

I Am Amazon — Portuguese

If you have your Chrome browser preferences set to any of the selected languages, you will automatically see Voyager stories in that language.
