(10 April 2014) The ORCID user interface is now available in Korean. The translation of the ORCID user interface was made possible through the efforts of Senator Jeong, an ORCID Ambassador. He commented, “ORCID is a strong authority control tool for bibliographic data among other things because it allows us to disambiguate very common author names in scholarly works, which is particularly problematic in Korea.”
Users may now register for an ORCID identifier and manage their account in Korean. This augments the current support for five languages (English, French, Spanish, and Traditional and Simplified Chinese), and builds upon capabilities ORCID has offered since launch for adding content, including alternate names, in multiple character sets. Portuguese, Russian, and Japanese will be rolled out this year.
