In 1995, the founders of Google, Larry Page and Sergey Brin met at Stanford. A year later in 1996, Larry and Sergey began collaborating on a search engine called BackRub. Backrub operated on the Stanford servers for more than a year before taking up too much bandwidth. The following year, on September 15th, 1997, Google.com is registered as a domain. The founders created Google with a mission in mind, to organize a seemingly infinite amount of information on the web.

The solution was the first ten languages that are able to be read by Google search. They are French, German, Italian, Swedish, Finnish, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Norwegian and Danish. A year later Google images was launched.
