Researchers, you can now change your preferred language in Ebook Central, on-the-fly. Options include Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, or Turkish. The Ebook Central interface -- as well as your email alerts -- will be automatically translated to any language you select.

Our goal is to increase the usability of Ebook Central and benefit researchers around the world -- this is just our first step. Additional languages are in development, including Arabic, Czech, and Swedish.
