There are two ways to do this:

  • In CrossSearch, (the search box on the library home page), do your search then scroll down to Languages in the left hand column and select the language you want. 
     
  • In the catalogue, go to advanced search, enter your search words and select your language from the drop-down Language list. If you enter English search words this will find translations from the language you specify as well as works in the language. 

If the language you want isn't included in the drop-down list, look up its 3 letter code in the language list linked below. The language code is usually the first 3 letters of the language, eg vie for Vietnamese, ara for Arabic.

In either keyword or advanced search, enter your search words then add the following: and lang:langxyz, where xyz stands for the 3 letter language code. eg, a search for short stories and lang:langvie finds short stories in Vietnamese
