Article Databases

Article databases provide powerful search engines to retrieve articles, and many of the database publishers now offer ways that you can customize the interface by language and even translate or listen to the articles that you find.  EBSCOhost has the most flexible interface, allowing the user to customize by many languages.  EBSCOhost also allows you to translate articles or listen to articles that are presented in html format. EBSCOhost includes a large number of databases on a wide range of topics.

OvidSP offers language interfaces in English, French, German, Japanese, Chinese (traditional), Chinese (simplified), and Spanish. They do not offer article translation or the audio service.
