Crawl Errors in Foreign Language - Webmaster Tools

Interesting view in Google Webmaster Tools this morning, 'crawl errors' are reading in different languages, first German:

Followed with French:

Then a little Spanish:

There was some (I believe) Slovenian, but no English.

This isn't the real problem the problem was that there were no links through to the relevant errors, with Google's new layout, which I believe has gone down well, you have to navigate firstly to diagnostics, then crawl errors to see what the errors actually are - fine for a dab-hand, but have some sympathy for new users.

Ah ha here's the (I still believe) Slovenian version:

And finally English:

But alas still no links - well at least there was one fix.


  1. same here... if you find out what's going on please post.

  2. same thing keeps happening to me, "Crawl errors" in foreign languages, not all the time. inly sometimes.

  3. I've had a look into this and no change seems to have taken place yet, in fact more languages are being made visible on a daily basis - maybe it's Google's new language course!

  4. I am having the same thing. First German, then Russian. I am hosted with 1and1 (German servers) anyone hosted with them?

      I don't think it's the server that's the problem, I think it's a glitch with Webmaster Tools.

  5. I believe that google doing there best to all of that but still google translate is still not perfect.
