Javascript – Google Maps API v3.5 Geocoder language option


I use Google Maps API to get city name in 2 different languages by users' coordinates. Before version 3.5 of the API I was able to use language option in geocoder's request, but since June 8, 2011 this option is removed.

Can someone give me any idea how can I get the city name in two or more different languages with maps' geocoder?

I included the js script with language option something like this –

It seems that the feature has been removed:

We made this change to simplify the API. The Geocoder uses the browser's preferred language, or language specified when loading the API" (Source)

It still work if used directly:,-73.961452&sensor=false&language=ja,-73.961452&sensor=false&language=en
