Welcome to Knowledge for All’s Internationalization Working Group - an open group to support the internationalization and translation of the Knowledge for All project.
Knowledge for All is a global project. It invites participation from individuals and institutions across all borders and aims to link all users to scholarly journal literature regardless of political or geographical location. To remain true to its mission and core values the project must be accessible to contributors, partners and users in a variety of languages. It is the task of the Internationalization Working Group to address, coordinate and effectively plan this effort.

How to participate
To all Working Group members,
We recently shared a letter from Knowledge for All's Founding Director Mark Leggott inviting stakeholders and members of the library and acacemic community to join the Knowledge for All project as a Founding Partner.
Founding Partnerships are critical at this stage of project development and will ensure we have the financial resources to continue building the Knowledge for All tool for the benefit of the community.
What are user needs and expectations around multilingual scholarly journal content? Do most academics expect to do their research in English? And if so, is that acceptable or should we be challenging it?
Does anyone know of studies to recommend on this issue, or can you speak from personal experience?
