Language Translation Features in GALILEO Resources

Many of the resources in GALILEO have recently added the ability to translate articles, which can be helpful for students who are learning English or other languages.

All grade levels of Encyclopædia Britannica allow you to turn on the Spanish translator in an article and then click a word in the article to see the translated word.

Articles in SIRS Issues Researcher have a Translate dropdown menu to allow users to translate the article into a variety of languages.

Many EBSCO resources, including Kids Search, Middle Search Plus, Student Research Center, MAS Ultra, Literary Reference Center, History Reference Center, and others, allow you to change the language of the database interface as well as the language of the article.

Students can also find a Spanish-language encyclopedia and article databases in the Spanish Resources section of GALILEO High School and GALILEO Teen. In addition, Global Reference Center provides encyclopedia and reference resources for several languages, including Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Korean, French, and Japanese.

Please Contact Us if you have questions or comments or if you need to report problems.
