Journal Articles in Other Languages

In most databases, such as ATLA Religion Database, there is the advanced search option to select a language of the articles you would like view. This will retrieve articles in your chosen language, although some abstracts may be in English. 

You can also narrow by language from the search results screen. 


If you feel really comfortable using another language you can change the whole interface from English. 
Note: this does not effect the language of the articles being retrieved.
