University project makes Covid-19 information accessible in different languages

Covid-19 information has been made available in languages from around the world.

Globe Translations

SynthSys students, postdocs and group leaders are among more than fifty people who have contributed their scientific and linguistic knowledge to make translations of the presentations at the Edinburgh Coronavirus workshop available in over twenty languages.

Providing factual and unbiased interpretations of insights emerging from Covid-19 research is critical. The Edinburgh Infectious Diseases Community came together to make information much more accessible for people whose first language is not English.
