Is WorldCat.org available in languages other than English?

Applies to
  • WorldCat.org
Answer

The WorldCat.org interface is available in thirteen languages: Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, and Thai.

Note that changing the interface language does not affect the language of records in a result set. For example, switching from English to French does not alter search results so that only French-language materials, or materials available from libraries in France, are displayed. The items presented to a user for a particular search remain the same regardless of the interface language.
