Foreign Language Materials

The following sites contain materials in languages other than English. While materials would ideally be interpreted by trained medical interpreters, it is not always possible to get materials written this way. If a family member speaks English, it may be a good idea to review a document with them first to be sure it says what you think it says. If you know a good site with foreign language materials, submit it to us.

Health Information Translations: Information on many health conditions, translated by trained personnel, available in English, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Hindu, Somalia, Korean, Ukrainian, French & Spanish.

SUNYit Culture Med™ (State University of New York Institute of Technology): Compiled list of numerous websites with health information in many languages.

Leukemia Foundation of Australia: Understanding Leukemias, Lymphomas & Myelomas in Arabic, Chinese, Croatian, Filipino, Greek, Italian, Korean, Macedonian & Vietnamese.

SPIRAL: Selected Patient Information Resources in Asian Languages: Developed by South Cove Community Health Center and Tuft's University to increase access to health materials for the Asian community. Numerous cancer topics in Hmong, Thai, Korean, Chinese, Cambodian, Vietnamese and Laotian.
