United Resource Connection is Multilingual!
I’m very proud to introduce a new feature at United Resource Connection that will improve the coordination and collaboration of local service agencies, social workers, and care providers, while advancing our additional mission goal to provide linguistically sensitive materials. Effective immediately, all communities of United Resource Connection have multilingual support. To see this technology in action, simply click on the U.S. flag in the center header portion of any article or page to reveal a list of international flags representing the various languages into which United Resource Connection can now be translated. By clicking on one of the flags, the entire web site is immediately translated into the language requested. This even includes group forum topics and posts, no matter what language was used to initially post the information within these forums. “Universal translators” (to use an old star trek term) have been around a number of years now, what makes our present development so significant is how easy it is to use today. With a single click of a button, visitors now have access to our entire website in 80+ different languages. This is a huge asset in improving the delivery system of local resources in our growing metropolitan communities.
The 80+ languages include: Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Basque, Belarusian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, French, Galician, Georgian, German, Greek, Haitian Creole, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malay, Maltese, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu, Vietnamese, Welsh, and Yiddish.
Check it out! Registration to share information on a local chapter of the United Resource Connection is free, and now, with multilingual support, reaches more people. If you have not registered, do so today, and start spreading the wealth of knowledge you’ve gained over the years as a local service provider or recipient.
