Groups interface: Arabic, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, English (UK), Filipino, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, Ukranian, Vietnamese.

How to access what’s new:
– If the checkbox ‘Automatically add new Google services’ is checked in the administrator Control Panel, then Groups (user-managed) will be visible in your Dashboard.
– Otherwise, in your Google Apps Dashboard, click ‘Add more services’. Click the ‘Add it now’ button to enable Groups (user-managed) for your domain.

Note: To add user-managed groups as a service, your Control Panel needs to be in US English and have the ‘Next Generation’ option selected in ‘Domain Settings’. It will remain as a service on the Dashboard after you revert your control panel language back to your chosen language. The Groups interface language is determined by your web browser settings.
