Voilà, they did it. Google.mu now is in Mauritian Creole, the lingua franca of the island. That’s a language that i consider to be only spoken… there’s is no rule to write in Mauritian Creole, it’s all phonetics.  However, there’s been a lot of efforts to write a creole dictionary and Dr Arnaud Carpooran did it. I wonder if they’ll come up with a Mauritian spellchecker in the coming years…

Anyway, that’s a major step for the island and its 1million+ population. Congrats to the collaborators.
