MacOS 11: New Language Features

Apple's documentation indicates that Big Sur should have at least the following new language features:

+New bilingual dictionaries include French–German, Indonesian–English, Japanese–Simplified Chinese, and Polish‑English.

+New fonts for India include 20 new document fonts. In addition, 18 existing fonts have been upgraded with more weights and italics

+Enhanced predictive input for Chinese and Japanese results in more accurate and contextual predictions

I have found 4 additional items on the spellcheck language list compared to Catalina: Irish, Romanian, Punjabi, and Telugu.

Big Sur also lets you switch keyboards via the Fn key, which has a globe printed on it on the latest hardware.
