Wouldn’t it be great to have a feature on your website that could translate your online content into another language with the blink of an eye? Well, that wish has finally been granted. Earlier this month Science.gov released a Spanish version of its website – Ciencia.Science.gov. This initiative is truly amazing and inspiring. Government science information is now available to the 35 million Spanish speaking residents of the United States, which makes the U.S. ranked second in size in terms of the world’s Hispanic populations.
Ciencia.Science.gov translates Science.gov’s 200 million pages of U.S. government science information into Spanish. The Library of Congress is a member of Science.gov’s interagency initiative of 17 U.S. Government science organizations which form the voluntary Science.gov Alliance.
Science.gov indexes the Library’s Science Reference Service or Servicios de referencia de la ciencia content, which includes the distinguished LC Science Tracer Bullet or Balas Trazadoras series, the popular Everyday Mysteries or Misterios cotidianos website, and our Inside Adams or Interior Adams blog.
Along with the Library’s science information, you can also find its legislative information and images (under multimedia) in Science.gov.
It’s a very proud moment for the Science.gov Alliance and I would like to thank them for their hard work that has resulted in making the U.S.government’s science content accessible to more of its citizens.
