Gimeru. That’s how they’re going to say it in Japan, to the excruciating annoyance of thousands of ex-patriot English teachers, harping again that its goo-guhl, not goo-goh, it’s jee-may-uhl, not jee-meh-roo.

Students will smile and say, “do you sending gimeru?” Teachers will smile and wait for the tones. Yahoo is much easier.

Google announced today that its GMail service is now available in Japanese to all who are interested. Japanese becomes one of the 40 different languages in which the company offers its web-based mail.

According to the Reuters report, since Google opened up contextual ad driven GMail in Australia and New Zealand, revenues generated by the mail service have had “quite a significant impact.”

The push into the Japanese market will ride the airwaves on to mobile phones rather than to computers. Mobiles are used more than PCs for search and email – and for all things cute and dangly.
