I'm doing APA and having trouble doing a hanging indent in Word.
1..Select and highlight your entire citation. 2. Right click your mouse, or your mousepad. This will come up with a list of items such as "copy", "paste", however in this case you need to click "Paragraph". 3. Within that menu there is the "indents and spacing" tab. You will see in the second area labeled "indentation" there's a dropdown box labeled "Special:" 4. Click the dropdown box under "Special:" and click "hanging" 5. Click "Ok" at the bottom of this menu and your citation should now be in hanging indent form!

I have this topic but I can't seem to find anything on it?
Finding information comes down to keywords. Double check your subject and how you are narrowing your topic. Is it too narrow? Do your keywords match with the industry you are researching? "Quitting smoking" might be what we say in our everyday lives, however "smoking cessation" is what you will find in medical journals. Preliminary research is always helpful to figure out what the standard vocabulary is for the subject you are researching it. If you find difficulty and have to change or adjust your research question or your keywords, then that is normal. It is nothing to be worried or ashamed about, it is just part of the process.

Should I use Google Translate to help me?
Google translate will never be able to understand small difference in language use. We call these small understandings, nuances. Especially words that you may not realize are slang, will be translated incorrectly if you use Google. Try to use simple sentences to answer questions. This will improve your language ability and the ability to be understood.
