Siri about to speak in (new) tongues?

Apple puts out ad for person to join the Siri team who is fluent in several languages that Siri currently does not speak.

Inside Scoop: Google voice search talks circles around Siri

Is Siri soon to get new language support? An Apple job listing is advertising for someone who is "native or fluent in Arabic, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Korean, Norwegian, Swedish, and fluent in English" to join the team charged with delivering Siri "in different parts of the world" for a six-month stint.

A harbinger of Apple's intentions? Let the speculation begin. For the record, iMore reporter, Joseph Keller, who first noticed the posting, points out that Siri is not compatible with Swedish, Finnish, and Arabic.
