Answer

Yes, EBSO can translate articles, but only if they are in HTML format. Most articles are in PDF format and EBSCO cannot translate those. If your article is avilabel in HTML Full Text, here are details on how to translate:

To translate the full text of an article:

  1. From the article detail, select a language from the Choose Language drop-down list.

  2. Click Translate. The full text of the article is presented in the language you selected.  

    Translating the Full Text

  3. To return to English, click Return.

 Note: If you print, e-mail or save the full text, it will be delivered in the language of the database. However, you can print the translated text using your browser's Print function.

A Note About Automatic Translation
Automatic translation software systems is considered a “gisting” application, producing translations that enhance the end-user’s understanding of the original document. It does not produce the same level of translation that a human translator could provide.
