The aim of the national MyLanguage portal: http://www.mylanguage.gov.au/ is to improve access to multilingual online information for Australians whose first language is not English. It is also very useful for people learning another language. The portal provides access to search engines, web directories and news in over 60 differenct languages, from Africaans to Vietnamese. It also includes lessons in Internet searching in different languages. The portal was developed a few years ago between state and territory libraries.
