As of June 2018, only the English version of multi-language articles will appear in PubMed/MEDLINE and be indexed for MEDLINE. In the past, when journals published multiple translations of an article in the same issue, the English version was indexed for MEDLINE & citations for any non-English versions were included in PubMed as PubMed-not-MEDLINE (where Medical Subject Headings are not added). In many cases, users will still have access to the non-English versions of these articles when they access the full text on the publisher’s Web site.
