Multi-language support in Google Now delayed until summer
Google is now delaying support for seamlessly switching between languages on the fly with its Google Now search. Originally planned for a roll-out within the next few days, the feature is now delayed for a launch later this summer due to the discovery of some last minute bugs.
"Multi-language support is complicated stuff and they found some bugs during their final testing phase that they wanted to fix before making the feature generally available," a Google spokesperson told CNET, and the publication is saying that the feature "is now expected to ship later this summer."
Multi-language support would allow multi-lingual users to select up to seven different languages so that they can seamlessly conduct a search in one language, look up information in another language, and launch an app in a whole new language for example. This would all be enabled without requiring users to alter the app's settings when switching from one language to the next.

My phonebook has 20 different nationalities (and different names), I can correctly pronounce all of them but google wont understand the "native tongue"
My only solution for now is to use "phonetic" name for example Dietrichsen is pronounced Diet - Rich - Sen.
With text messages in different language that will be hands down the best feature
