Starting with the November 2006 issue, MSDN Magazine is now available online in seven languages!  This includes English, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, and Simplified Chinese.  Want to read the November issue in Russian?  How about German?  Maybe in Spanish?

We're very excited to be able to bring this content to the global community.  There are still some portions of the MSDN Magazine site that aren't localized (navigation elements, back issues, and so forth), but we decided based on community feedback that it was most important to get all new issues to you in these languages as soon as possible.  As we move forward, not only will all new issues of the magazine be available translated into all of the languages mentioned, but hopefully we'll be able to provide additional languages and to localize more and more of the site.

If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions on this step forward, please feel free to get in touch.

As a shameless self promotion, here is my November '06 ".NET Matters" column in each of the seven languages we're currently providing:
