Solus Library App now supporting 24 languages!

Depth of languages for the mobile app enhances both domestic and international appeal for libraries and their patrons/students

Solus Ltd. is pleased to announce the addition of 4 new languages, bringing the total to 24, with 12 additional local country variations.  The Solus Library App has seen tremendous growth both internationally, as well as in the North American market through itself and reseller partners.

SOLUS Multilingual Library app

The Library App supports a smart download approach from the Apple and Google app stores, whereby the Library App language will corelate to the language installed on the phone. For example, if the patron’s phone has the Spanish language enabled, the Library App will download with the Spanish language version. The patron can then change the language setting under their My Account to practice English or another language option.

The SOLUS app in 24 languages

As well as the App level professional translations, libraries can also upload any content via the SOLUS Content Management System which they can choose to have machine translated, making it easy for them to provide their local content in multi-lingual versions.

The SOLUS app – anytime , anywhere and in 24 langyages

John Richardson, Director of Solus North America states, “The Library App’s tremendous multi-lingual support benefits and enhances the Library’s presence in multicultural environments where many people do not speak English as their first language. Speaking a patron’s language cannot help but endear that person to the Library’s efforts in communicating in their language and will help libraries engage with their increasingly diverse local communities!”
