I am happy to announce that Adobe Acrobat and Reader X are now available in French, German, Japanese, Italian, Swedish, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese (Brazilian), Norwegian, Finnish, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Czech, Hungarian, Turkish, Russian, Polish, Croatian, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, and Ukrainian. Adobe Reader X is also available in Catalan and Basque.
Besides bringing all these local language versions to market, we have also incorporated locale specific features. Such as:

Starting November 2010, we increased the number of countries where Acrobat.com services are available for purchase, from 3 (North America only) to 38 (Worldwide).

Take a look:
For users of Adobe Reader, in addition to the language support mentioned above, we also have released Adobe Reader X for Android in thirteen languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Danish, Brazilian-Portuguese, Swedish, Russian, Czech, Polish and Turkish.
