Re: Amazon.de now available in English

I glanced at Amazon.de, and I noticed two new things. First, the language option with English is no longer BETA. Secondly, there are two more language options---Dutch and Polish. I thought it odd that Dutch was an option since there's a Amazon.nl site already, but there seems to be more stuff available on the German site. It will be interesting to see if Czech is added as an option later.

Re: Amazon.de now available in English

I imagine they're just standardizing the structures and templates across all their sites, so that any site can be offered in any language. I'm a bit surprised they didn't start out that way, to be honest.

That said, I'll keep using the German version. I've seen occasional mistakes where the English version of a site differed from the German and set the wrong expectations because the site owner was acting according to the German version...

Re: Amazon.de now available in English

Im not too happy with the English version either. Too many mistakes and quite often what I am looking for does not show up, only if I switch back to the German version
