How to find high quality translated health information!
Finding health information
One of the most common questions we get here at CEH is, ‘where do I find information on health translations?’ We can understand that looking for accurate and reliable translations can be a challenging task, especially where health and wellness information is so easily accessible and widely disseminated. Health Translations makes this easy by providing one central library to search for multilingual health information across Australia.
Health Translations – a Victorian government initiative
You can find reliable translated health and wellbeing resources at the Health Translations website. If you have not visited the site before, Health Translations is a large library, maintained by our team at CEH, with easy to access material in many different languages and formats. If the library is new to you or you use it regularly, you may want to know more about what is available and learn some short cuts.
Providing a service to your clients
With a variety of information available in different languages, it is essential to find translations that get your message across to your clients as you intended. Well translated resources help your clients to feel at ease, familiar, improve their health journey and avoids misunderstandings.
We are running a webinar in March to provide you with key insights, tips and a how to guide for navigating through the Health Translations website. We will present some insights about how to look for a good translation, and how to tailor use of the site to your clients’ needs. Our presenters Anni and Georgia will provide you with detailed knowledge of how it all works to stay up to date and informed.
Please join us for the webinar on Thursday, 23rd March. 12:00 – 12.30pm
(Time zone: UTC+10:00 Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney)
This event is free, but please register to reserve a place.
Our Health Translations team are proud to be working on such a unique program, maintaining and improving the Health Translations site. We hope this webinar helps you understand how you, your clients, friends and family can access translated materials in a convenient way.
