We are now starting to get the international versions of the SQL Server 2005 Books Online back from the translators. As we did with SQL Server 2000, we are posting downloadable versions of these in the Download Center. But for the first time we are also publishing the translated copies in the MSDN Library so that they are available on the Web.

As we publish the different languages we'll update the language selector on the TechCenter BOL download page

So far we have published the Japanese and German Books Online
