Our partner UniversalDoctor has lunched a new application Refugee Speaker :
“In 2015 alone, over half a million refugees have already entered Europe to escape war, persecution and oppression. This has created a critical need to provide services for refugees – and we want to help.
How? By offering UniversalDoctor Speaker, our multilingual medical translation apps, for refugees and their healthcare personnel through our new campaign: www.refugeespeaker.org.
Our aim is to help refugees and healthcare personnel communicate across language barriers and enable refugees to receive care in their native language.”
UniversalDoctor has launched a non-profit initiative for the Ebola outbreak: Translation4Outbreaks.
Translations 4 Outbreaks is a crowd-translation platform to translate Ebola information for patients and medical personnel into as many languages as possible. The platform harnesses the language skills of people from across the world (the ‘crowd’) by making it easy for them to help translate important healthcare and outbreak information into different languages.
The content of the Ebola messages on the platform comes from different public health authorities (CDC, MSF etc) who provide credible information on Ebola. All translations will be offered as free PDFs on the website for anyone to download and use.
Applications are accepted from people all over the world to help with this crowd-translation effort so if you would be interested in helping, spread the word !
