5.2. Indicate the language of each document available for download written in a foreign language

Whenever a link points to a document available for download in a different language than the main language of the page, then the language of the document must be indicated in the link text.

Example of an indication of the language of a PDF document.

Note

If it is not practical to add this information in the link texts (lack of space in the mock-up, for example), there are other solutions that can be used later in the development phase.
Nevertheless, this is a compromise solution that is less effective than directly optimizing the link text.

Tip

Another solution is to write the title of the document to be downloaded in the language of its content.
