New Multilingual Search on HIV/AIDS Portal

Monday, January 19th, 2015

The HIV/AIDS Portal now offers users the ability to search for multilingual content.  The new Multilingual Search interface searches specifically for HIV/AIDS related topics from the multilingual and multicultural content of HealthReach (formerly RHIN). HealthReach offers easy access to quality health information to individuals for whom English is not their primary language. It is also an important resource for health professional as well as public health administrators. Users can search by subject/topic, language and format.  The default for the search is always HIV/AIDS so there is no need for these terms to be included in the search.  There is also an Advanced Search capability to further refine your retrieval.  The content is available in audio and video formats as well as text.  For text documents there is a feature that allows you to view the document in a split screen with one side being English the other being the language you requested in your search.

 

The Multilingual Search interface is listed under the Resources For…Multilingual Speakers on the HIV/AIDS Portal homepage.  http://1.usa.gov/1zshA3H
