The Special Libraries Association has expanded accessibility to its online content by integrating language translation services from WorldLingo. Visitors to www.sla.org may now access free, electronically prepared translations of HTML text housed on that site by selecting any of twelve languages: Chinese (simplified and traditional), Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
This new service on www.sla.org is intended to provide rudimentary translation. Visitors to the site may also select a professional translation option from WorldLingo. This fee-based service allows visitors to request a quote on professional translation of any page or document found on the SLA Web site. Upon receiving the quote, visitors may choose to purchase or decline. Electronically prepared translations are not available for attached documents (for example, Word or PDF documents), but fee-based professional translations may be obtained.
