Google’s mission is to organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. Since our founding in 1998, Google has grown by leaps and bounds. From offering search in a single language they now offer dozens of products and services—including various forms of advertising and web applications for all kinds of tasks—in scores of languages.
