Immersion articles - getting articles that interest me

Hello! I was just wondering what the best way to get articles is in other languages. Whenever I look up "Spanish Article about (topic)", it doesn't yield many results. I have uploaded an article, but nothing that I'm very interested in. Anyone have any suggestions of where to get these kinds of articles?

Try going to a search engine for a country where your target language is spoken - for example, google.es (Spain), google.com.mx (Mexico), etc.

Then put in your keywords and the phrase "creative commons" in quotes.

(Articles have to be in creative commons/public domain to upload for free translation)

Try wikipedia. Look up the English wikipedia article on your subj. Go to the left on that page and click on the link to the language you are interested in. (In Spanish? http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colegio_Hogwarts_de_Magia_y_Hechicer%C3%ADa .) Follow all the links in the article for more related articles. Use suitable terms from the article(s) to search the internet for hits on these key words. (If you've already done this, I apologize for mentioning the obvious.)

[Added: Oops, I see Luscinda has beat me to it.

[BTW, this is a great way to figure out the names of animals, in particular, that you may encounter while reading. So often the names of animals are not included in regular dictionaries. Plus on wikipedia there's usually a picture or two.]
