The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) is Ireland’s national trusted digital repository for the social and cultural, historical and contemporary data held by Irish institutions. DRI provides users with a bilingual (Irish and English) user interface at all user access levels, and provides innovative ways to process and display bilingual metadata. This article details our experience in enriching the bilingual metadata and developing the bilingual features of the repository. We present solutions to some of the linguistic and technical challenges we faced and provide recommendations to developers and archivists on how best to prepare bilingual content for contemporary archival repositories.
