Solus Library App now supporting 30 languages!

Solus Library App now supporting 30 languages! At Solus we are pleased to announce the addition of 4 new languages, bringing the total to 30, 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.

We know libraries can lead their communities by example. As hubs for dialogue, spaces for performance, repositories for expressions of culture, and providers of services that nurture inclusion. This functionality in the app helps you engage with your increasingly diverse local communities

Your library in 30 languages for your multicultural community!

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

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.

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 customer’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!”
