translating COVID-19 materials
The coronavirus pandemic forced healthcare providers to rapidly produce critical new communications. Eriksen can help your organization translate COVID-19-related materials such as patient information, prevention guidelines, risk assessment and screening forms, and vaccination procedures.
Like other public health crises, the current pandemic introduced new terminology. To help healthcare organizations facilitate the translation of COVID-related communications, we developed and published a glossary of COVID-19 terms in 18 languages. You can download it here free of charge.
