    @giovanni. Not only that but we also have base map tiles localized for Western Europe too so when you pull up a map in VE and pass in the mkt parameter like de-de you get the base map layer in German, etc. so that all the city names, rivers, geo political names are all in the local language now.
    Excellent. Personally I do prefer the english version (for personal reasons). Now to make it perfect, I would like to see a scale in mi AND km and driving directions in both units, though this is a request for the Live Maps team and not the Virtual Earth one.

    Edit: never mind you can set your unit under options. I never saw that one before.
