Pete Cashmore over at Mashable has got the scoop, Flickr's reaching beyond the English language and adding support for 7 new languages: Korean, Italian, German, Portuguese, Spanish, traditional Chinese and French. A Japanese version is rumored to be forthcoming.
Although I'm not educated in the French language, Flickr's got a post on it's blog, in which they promoted Flickr's use in France. They held a "24 Hours of Flickr" back on May 5th. Apparently it was a success since they are celebrating with a some sort of show (Bablefish doesn't do that good of a translation!) held on June 14, 2007.
