You already know we’re about history, but did you know we can help you practice your language skills as well?
Although the majority of items in the Portal are in English, we are developing significant holdings in other languages:
- Spanish–5,373 items–including newspapers, maps, letters, and photographs
- German–814 items–including materials from the German Immigration to Texas Collection and new items in the Texas Cultures Online Collection
- French–575 items–including resources from more than 25 different counties in Texas
We also have items in Czech, Italian, Hebrew, Latin, Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish, Comanche, and other languages.
To find materials in a particular language, browse a collection of interest, or conduct a search for your desired topic. When the results list opens, choose a language from the facets on the left-hand side of the screen.
You may sometimes see a choice for “no language.” This generally refers to non-text items such as photographs and physical objects. However, when a photograph contains “readable” text such as a banner, sign, label, or plaque, it will be assigned the language shown. Here are some examples:A Spanish-Language Photo
