One of the great things about using MyHeritage for census records in other countries is the awesome Global Name TranslationTM technology. MyHeritage says this about their technology:
If you’re researching ancestors from another country, you may find this opportunity particularly useful. Thanks to MyHeritage’s Global Name Translation™ technology, you can find records even in languages other than your own. The algorithm identifies additional versions of the names you’re searching for, including nicknames and versions in other languages, and will locate records that match. The census and voter list collections include, for example, electoral rolls from Greece that are recorded in Greek — but you can still search them in your native language, and you’ll see the results translated back into your language for you.
Why Should I Search Census Records at Several Different Websites?
You may not have ever realized it, but searching for the exact same record at a different website can be very beneficial. For example, if you are looking at a Canadian census record at Ancestry and it isn’t quite clear enough to make out, checking another website like MyHeritage or FamilySearch for the same census record may provide you with a clearer image.
