Multi-language support

Hello, we are sending data to crossref via xml schema. We have 2 language options in our articles, Turkish and English. We want to display in crossref according to the first language of the article. We send the first language of the article via original_title_language. But the notation in crossref is referencing the tag. How can we include the <original_language_title> tag in the display? Or how can we do multi-language support? Thank you.

Hi @mkoc ,

Thanks for your message, and welcome to the community forum.

DOIs are really citation identifiers, so we advise that members register the journal-level metadata as well as your journal-article-level metadata as you believe those works will be cited. Do you believe that the content is more likely to be cited in English or Turkish? If the former, register the journal title in English. If the latter, register the journal title in Turkish.

We recommend registering the metadata in the language that matches the language of the content itself. For illustration, if the article (or, content) was written and published in Turkish, then the article would most likely be cited in Turkish, so we’d recommend that the metadata registered with us also be in Turkish.

Keep in mind that <original_language_title> is meant for use with translations only. It’s not a way to insert extra metadata in another language. If you want to submit multiple titles for a given article, to have the metadata in two languages, then you can register two <titles> tags.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions,
Isaac
