Sad loss but all the language packs are temporarily available free so grab them whiel you can.

I wish Apple would buy up some of these great apps (Sparrow was such a loss, for instance)

I use the German and Italian ones fairly often, the Spanish and French less so as I can read both languages reasonably well. Its not flawless but gives you the gist of meanings
