Google has expanded its Google News offering to yet another language, as it has launched the Polish version. That makes 23 languages and 49 countries in which Google News is available.

"In addition to searching and browsing more than 300 news sources from their desktop, 40 million Polish speakers from Poland and around the world will also be able to find News results through an iPhone," says Benoit Lafortune at the Google News Blog.

The Polish news results will also be blended into standard search results on the Polish version of Google, much like they are here in America. Honestly, it seems like they should have Google News available in all languages by now. Their ultimate quest is after all to organize the world’s information. But, at least they are one step closer to that goal with the Polish release.

I can’t read Polish, but it doesn’t look like there are any archives available at this point, although I would expect there will be eventually. At some point they might even get the print newspaper archives in their as well.

For those who can read Polish, there is a post about it from Przemys?aw Budkowski on the Google Poland Blog.
