Translation Services

Hello! Did you know that many of our library databases offer translation services for articles? Translating many of the articles from the EU Library databases into a language other than English is as easy as clicking a button!

Databases with Translation and Listening Services

EBSCOhost All Databases

  • To change the interface language, use the Language button (top right). * Note: All searches will have to been in English no matter the interface language.
  • Some articles give the option of having the article read aloud to you- these features are article specific not database specific. When an article has this option, a Listen button will appear on either the side navigation or at the beginning of the full-text section. Click on this or the “translate” button at the beginning of the full-text section.


  • Both Translation and Listening features can be found after clicking on the article in the tools sidebar menu on the right side of the page. * Some databases within InfoTrac do not feature this:  Business & Company Resource Center, Business Index ASAP, General BusinessFile ASAP, Health & Wellness Resource Center, Newsletters ASAP


  • Translation options are available when viewing an article (not the pdf). Click the Translate link next to the title.


  • When viewing a document select the Translate Document drop-down.


  • Note: Speech is only available in English.
  • You can listen to specific text or have the entire page read aloud. You can select different voices and adjust the speed and pitch.
  • To have text read aloud:
  1. Click on My Settings in the upper right hand corner.  At the bottom of that screen, click on the checkbox for “Display pages in accessibility mode.”
  2. Select the book you wish to have read to you.

  4. In the new ebrary Reader view, click the Speech tab in the right hand Panel.
  5. Select the text you want to hear. If you do not select text, the entire page is read aloud.
  6. Click the Read button.
  7. To end the reading, click the Stop Reading button.
  8. To pause and then resume the reading, click the Pause button. Click the Resume button when you want to continue.
