Selecting an About This Book Language
 
1. Many of the books in the ICDL have information such as the book title, author, and summary in more than one language. After you have searched for and found some interesting books, you can select a language to display them in. Any books with information in the language you select will appear in this language. All other books will appear in English, or the main language of the book if there is no English translation. Sample Page
 
2. Once you select a single book to look at in more detail, you will be taken to a page with lots of information about the book. If information for the book is available in more than one language, you can select which language to see it in. Otherwise, the information will appear in English, or the main language of the book if there is no English translation. Sample Page
 
3. If you are having trouble seeing characters in another language, you probably need to install a font on your computer. Different languages require different fonts to display their characters. For help finding and installing fonts, please see our Foreign Character Help page.
