We are pleased to announce the release of Spotlight v2.0. Spotlight 2.0 includes a new major feature, the ability for curators and exhibit administrators to create multilingual exhibits. For more information about this new feature, please read the Spotlight Wiki documentation: https://github.com/projectblacklight/spotlight/wiki/Translations. This feature was completed funded as part of a project between the WSD Handa Center for Human Rights and International Justice and Stanford University Libraries.
The Stanford team that undertook the work on multilingual exhibits is demonstrated in the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAw_n-r2kJM
