[FEATURE PREVIEW] Display map labels in two languages + new option for displaying labels in the local language of each country or region of the map

February, 2014

This feature is being released as a preview and is subject to change.

You now have the option to specify a primary and secondary language for map labels when you set the mkt parameter in the map reference. The languages you choose are both displayed on the map in the order you specify them. You can also display map labels for each country or region on the map in the local language of that country or region by specifying the custom language option ngt. For details, see Localizing the Map.

Examples
