Google Translate Added to the AUR Library Catalog

The AUR Library Catalog has added a new function: to get an almost immediate translation using Google Translate.

It is very simple to use. On the opening page, as well as on pages for individual resources, you will see a drop-down box that allows you to search the language you want. You can watch as the page is translated into the language you choose, as if by magic!

Since all of this comes from Google's servers, and lives "in the cloud", you may have to wait for a second or two for the box to load, or for the translate to work, but give it a try, and tell us how you like it.

Be aware that the AUR Library uses Google Translate in other ways as well, for example, in the Italian newspapers page, and in the Op-Ed pages. We've added it this this blog, as well.
