Can the library translate a document?

I found an article that is in another language and would like it translated to English (or another language).

The library does not translate documents, but there are some options. Please note that the library does not endorse these, but you can use the links below or search for other websites or services via an internet search engine like Google. You will need to evaluate the performance and quality of any websites you find.

  1. You can often find a link to a translation on the article page. This is more likely if the article is in HTML format, not a PDF.
  2. Microsoft Translator for Word allows you to translate a Word document.
  3. DocTranslator is a free, web-based service that can translate a PDF file to and from more than 100 languages.
  4. Google Translate allows you to upload a document and have it translated. It also offers a "Translate this page" service. A pop-up box will appear and ask if you want the page translated. This will not apply to PDF documents you open.
  5. Translation services will be the most accurate option but the most expensive and may be considered a last resort.
