In German: "Google Text & Tabellen". Sounds stupid.

Sound as stupid as French... as English too :-/

BTW, In the official announcement on the Google blog (googleblog.blogspot.com/2007/0 ...), the title in French is correct, but it could slightly remember bad remembers for some french people, because of the bad side of the word "collaborate" (collaborer) : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collabor ...

it was just a side note, and there is an other : they said the googlebar has been updated. But I have the French version of it, and it still the version "3.0.20061204W Beta" :-/

I can't believe you dont count UK English as a language! It's more of a language than your effort!

Anyway, thanks for letting us not have 'colour' and 'aluminium' as red underlines!

Mambo, how about:

Be cool, it could be "Google Documentos y Hojas de Cálculo"! (36 characters, which is the biggest?)

((And Ionut would said : "why not Google Documentos, Hojas de Cálculo, Presentaciones y Wikis?"))

In Romanian, it would be "Google Documente si Foi Tabelare", but it's an awful name. No sane person would use it in a conversation.

They should choose a catchy name like YouTube so they don't have to translate it.

GoogleBox? YouType? GoogleBloat? (Sorry, sorry: it is NOT bloat. It's absolutely essential to the coming Google.)
