The Spanish version of Ask (Jeeves), Ask Espana, is out of beta and ready to roll. The discussing was posted bilingually at the Ask blog site with a graphic of the part of the mural designed for the event.

Search engines in Spain aren’t quite as prevalent as in the U.S. and Ask is taking advantage of this. A press conference in Madrid showed off the new site and its features to help searchers find what the need with solid Spanish language and Spain specific search options.

Users will have plenty of features to play with including binoculars to preview results, possible storing of images and sharing web pages through Miask. The engine will also include news, local search, product and download channels, bloglines notifiers and their new toolbar: Barra Ask.

They’ve also made arrangements to plug the Ask Espana search box into a lot of Spanish media sites thanks to agreements with Zeta, Godo and Hola!

This is a major move for Ask and will help solidify their presence in the European market. As Internet usage spreads, there are clear front-runners and Ask has been a distant fourth. Worldwide, this may help they climb up the usage ladders just a bit.
