CORE Library databases offer options for foreign language interface to help you better navigate your search. This means that buttons, directions, commands, and tabs in navigation will be expressed in the chosen language.

Here's an example of how a search results page would adjust if the user selected French (Francais) as the interface language. Note how the commands, buttons, and links are expressed in French, but the content of the abstract remains in English.
Articles in EBSCO databases are usually offered in several formats: HTML full text or PDF full text. If an article is available in HTML full text, you may be able to translate it into a different language.
1. Select the HTML Full Text version of the article
2. Look for a Choose Language dropdown menu. Select your preferred language, and then click Translate.
