Normally other languages require special characters which aren't available on US keyboard configurations, but here is what the Google Drive team had to say about it:

Try it now: To get started, change your document's language setting to the language you'd like to type in by going to File > Language...Then click the text input tool icon in your document toolbar or use a keyboard shortcut (Cmd + Shift + K on a Mac or Ctrl + Shift + K on a PC)
