Google Search Is Testing Split-View Language Interface
To manage searchers who speak multiple languages fluently, Google is testing a language split-view screen in the mobile search results.
Google is testing a new method of showing multiple languages in the mobile search results interface in India.

A Google spokesperson told us, “We’re always experimenting with the look and feel of our products but have nothing to announce.”
Abhijeet Mukherjee, who spotted this test, said, “Google showing search results in English and the native language, in a tabbed interface.”
It makes sense that Google would test an interface like this for countries that have searchers who speak two or more languages fluently.
