EBSCOhost customers can now enjoy the expansion of multilanguage searching in EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) and EBSCOhost® to include over forty-five (45) languages. This means that users will experience improved search results in both EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) and EBSCOhost databases.
Continued improvements support multilingual capabilities for non-Roman character set languages including Arabic, Greek, Hebrew, Russian and others. Additional improved searching in complex languages, and advanced support for non-Roman languages (Chinese, Japanese and Korean) are also being addressed. For example, phrases or sentences in languages such as Chinese, Japanese and Korean are commonly written without spaces between words. Some languages contain multiple scripts per language, and there are regional and historical variations to consider. EBSCO has created a system to handle these variations among character sets and offers unparalleled searching in these non-Roman languages.
Supporting multiple languages with non-Roman characters is a challenge with most online search services in the library marketplace. EBSCO Publishing’s Senior Director of Software Development, Ron Burns, noted that “EBSCO knew it had to develop a custom solution that addressed the needs of a global and diverse customer base, and became an essential element of the continued development of the EBSCOhost platform.”
