Interface Language Selector

Available to all customers is our content translation tool where the user is able to translate the English content to a number of different languages (and back to English) including, but not limited to:

  • French
  • Spanish
  • Portuguese

New to only PowerSearch Version 2.0 toolbox are three additional languages:

  • Russian
  • Arabic
  • Polish

Note: These languages are only available when using the PowerSearch v 2.0 searching and not in individual databases at this time.

You can specify the language in the URLs of some products for them to appear in specific languages.

If the language is not specified in the URL structure, the default browser language will be used.

Example:

General One File
http://find.galegroup.com/itx/start.do?prodId=ITOF&userGroupName=LOCID&lang=XX

Where XX will be one of the following values:

  • English = en
  • French = fr
  • Spanish = es
  • Portuguese = pt

*LOCID = a combination alpha numeric characters that that uniquely identifies your institution to Gale in the URL

http://infotrac.galergroup.com/itweb/"Location Identifier"   The example below uses the LOCID of main_library

http://infotrac.galegroup.com/itweb/main_library 

A change will also have to be made to the application piece of the URL:

http://find.galegroup.com/xxx/start.do?prodId=GVRL&userGroupName=LOCID&lang=es

Where xxx will be one of the following values:

  • Academic One File = itx
  • Academic ASAP = itx
  • Computer Database = itx
  • CPI.Q = itx
  • Discovering Collection = srcx
  • Educators Reference Complete = itx
