Weekly Update 82: Support for Japanese Wikipedia!
Over the past few weeks we've been busy adding support for Japanese Wikipedia entries — around 1.5 million of them! If you now search in Japanese you should see Instant Answer summaries for some searches. For example, きつねうどん (kitsune-udon; delicious thick noodles with deep-fried tofu) and ジョウビタキ (jobitaki; a small bird called a Daurian redstart). A big thank you to user marsf for helping with testing.
