Many citation management programs don’t really provide an easy, efficient, means of citing an item in multiple languages. Multi-Lingual Zotero (MLZ) lets researchers provide transliterations and/or translations in addition to the original language data that many academic journals require as part of their submission guidelines. MLZ proposes to solve this issue for researchers who work in multiple languages. For the CAS brown bag series I’d like to offer a simple example of how this software works, as its initial setup can be confusing. Like any technology, there are a few weaknesses, but it also provides many solutions. For students who will be soon preparing their papers/articles/thesis/dissertation, as well as professors embarking on a new research project, MLZ promises to make their research easier and more organized.
