I'm trying to get the street name in multiple languages from the Google Maps API V3. For example in Belgium there are multilingual street names:

enter image description here

If i set the language=FR i will get "Rue Brogniez" and language=NL results "Brogniezstraat".

How can i get these names together in one geocoder.geocode call?

You will find the answer by reading these two links: Google Geocoder Region Codes and IANA language subtags

In real usage a request would look something like this:

var geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder();
    geocoder.geocode({"address": your_address_string, "region": "NL"}, function(results, status){
    if(status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK){
        //do what you want to do here
        //to reach the full formatted address, use results[0].formatted_address
