I use CSVI - http://www.csvimproved.com/

Other feed generators are available. 

Note: you will need to customise the xml feed for google products as the free version of CSVI is not current specification for google.

The OpenGlobal VirtueMart Product Feeds component has several predefined feeds and the ability to generate your own custom CSV product feed formats:

It's not one of the default options, but as long as it's a CSV format, you can add it very easily.

No, it means that you can specify any locale/language that you have configured in your shop.
