Siri's About to Learn new languages?

Siri might be quite helpful, but there's still a small "big" step that Apple needs to address and where it has been failing for a very long time: there's a whole world out there... and there are hundreds of different languages Siri will need to understand to go global.

Google is doing a much better/faster work in that area, with its Google Voice Search already working with dozens of different languages, and although in my case I'm interested for Siri to hear me in Portuguese (seems that is also in the works, as it's about to reach Brasil), it seems that Apple is finally speeding up Siri's polyglot abilities.

At least that's what we can expect from the job posting where Apple says it needs native/fluent people in Arabic, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish.

I would feel a lot more comfortable if Portuguese was also in that list... but... I'll hope for the best.
