Google Suggest was released in the U.S. about seven months ago, and when it came to search terms like "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," the tool could be a helpful, allowing you to type just seven letters instead of thirty-four.  And now, people outside the U.S. will also be able to benefit, with some neat region-specific twists tossed in.

Yes, if you type "superc" into the main search box of Google UK, Google Ireland, Google India, or a number of other localized versions, you’ll see the full Mary Poppins word given as a suggestion.  On the Official Google Blog, David Kadouch explained, "Google Suggest now covers 155 domains in 51 languages."

But the really neat part is this: "We’ve localized our suggestions to account for various cultural and local factors to offer suggestions that look familiar to our users."

So if, for example, you type "liver" into the Google.com interface, you’ll see recommendations related to various health issues.  But try it with Google UK interface, and the suggestions lean towards the city in England and the Liverpool Football Club.

You can test Google Australia with "kangaroo" and Google Ireland with "pubs," too, if you please.

Although Google Suggest wasn’t too impressive when it first came out, this is a fairly interesting turn of events.
