How to 'Just Google It' in different languages

Reply Mon 10 Dec, 2012 12:12 am

Stuck in a debate at the pub with a foreigner and want to use the common expression "just Google it"?

It may not be as straightforward as it seems.

Apparently to "Google" isn't just an expression in English anymore. Countries across the world have jumped on board with their own version of the verb.
The Atlantic Wire picked up on the trend recently when it was flagged by readers of their site, so they compiled a list of how to say "to Google" in a few of their favourite languages.

Now you can stop wasting your time arguing for hours over a beer with an Israeli and just say you are going to "l'gagel".

Go on, Google that.

Here are the ways to say "Google it" in 20 languages:
English — google
Spanish — googlear and guglear
Italian — googlare
Portuguese — googlar or guglar
German — googeln and googlen
French — googler
Swedish — att googla
Hebrew — l'gagel
Slovenian — proguglati or poguglati
Croatian — guglati or proguglati
Polish — googlować
Russian — гуглить (gugleet or googleet)
Fillipino — eēgoogle mò (i-google mo)
Finnish — googlata
Dutch — googlen
Czech — vygooglit
Korean — google ha da
Romanian — a googăli
Greek — γκουγκλίζω (googlizo)
Icelandic — að gúgla (ao googlah)
The original story, with a full list was posted on the Atlantic Wire

I think Google is enough to be acceptable to all worldwide.

Hey nevin, that's nice that you think that, can you give me background on where you've travelled and in what context google has come in conversation so I can weight the veracity of your opinion?
