Search engines often give you the option of choosing a language and of choosing whether to search just that specific site or the entire search engine. Make use of these options to get just what you want.

Several major search engines have versions that serve a specific country, geographical area, or language using a country code suffix. Some examples are:

http://www.google.com.au
http://www.google.com.hk
http://www.yahoo.es
http://www.yahoo.ca
http://www.msn.fr
http://www.msn.co.in
