Ottawa, ON, June 11, 2010 – As a founding member of the WorldWideScience Alliance, the National Research Council’s Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (NRC-CISTI) is pleased to share the news that WorldWideScience.org has launched a new multilingual translation tool that provides the first-ever, real-time searching and translation of globally dispersed multilingual scientific literature.
WorldWideScience.org is a global science gateway established by a multi-nation alliance to enable federated searching of national and international scientific databases and portals. The launch of Multilingual WorldWideScience.orgBETA will broaden access to global science even further, allowing users to search databases in China, Russia, France and several Latin American countries and receive the search results translated into one of nine languages (Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish and Russian). More languages will be added in the coming months.
“This new tool is a tremendous resource for the global scientific community,” said Pam Bjornson, Director General NRC-CISTI and Deputy Chair of the WorldWideScience Alliance. “Sharing knowledge is essential to the innovation process and NRC-CISTI is proud to be part of an initiative that will make it easier for researchers to collaborate to accelerate discovery and innovation.”
