I am still going through last week's WWDC announcements on iOS 8 and OS X 10.10, Yosemite. Like last year with iOS 7, Craig Federighi was only able to highlight a few of the new features that will be available when iSO 8 is released, but there is always that slide listing some of the others. There were actually two slides that contained extras, but the first focussed on APIs and tools for developers (see later, below). The second one was for iOS user features.

Looking more closely, I see on that slide that there are to be new definition dictionaries for Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Thai and Turkish Hindi localization. There are also to be 24 new dictation languages as well as Indian, Tagalog, Irish Gaelic and Slovenian keyboards.

Apple seems to be well aware that it should not put all its eggs in that North American basket.
