The Polyglot Search Translator is a tool for translating search syntax from one bibliographic database to another on a different platform eg Ovid Medline to CINAHL (EBSCOhost) or Cochrane Library (Wiley).
Syntax describes the way database commands are written on each platform. For example searching for diabetes in the title of a record would look like:
Syntax is consistent across the same platform, so there is no need to translate syntax across different databases on the same platform. For example Ovid Medline, Ovid Embase, Ovid Emcare and APA PsycInfo (Ovid) use the same syntax/command language.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Polyglot only automates changes to syntax/command language. It CANNOT check your choice of subject headings, and you will need to manually check that these are relevant for each database.
