New Google Local Sites

Several sites, including Google Blogoscoped, Zorgloob, and IntelligenceCenter.com are reporting that Google Local is now online for several European countries.

+ Google Local France
+ Google Local Germany
+ Google Local Italy
+ Google Local Denmark
+ Google Local Norway
+ Google Local Ukraine

I did a bit of checking on my own and discovered:
+ Google Local Portugal
+ Google Local Russia
+ Google Local Poland

In some cases the interface and search is working. In other cases, only the interface has been translated and is not producing local results.
