Developing and Deploying a Multilingual COVID-19 Glossary

with Holly Seale, Associate Professor at the School of Population Health, University of New South Wales

Medical terms are complicated, from the simplest health concerns to more complicated issues, like vaccinations. When this information is not in your native language, it can become a matter of life or death. When COVID-19 hit Australia, Associate Professor Holly Seale (School of Population Health, University of New South Wales) recognized that a rapidly produced vaccine for a global pandemic had the potential to save millions of lives. To make that vaccine universally accessible, her team volunteered their time to develop a comprehensive medical glossary that addressed new public health and vaccination terms related to COVID-19.

This glossary has been translated into 31 languages to help non-English speaking Australians better understand the COVID-19 vaccine and related terms.

This webinar showcases:

  • How this glossary was developed
  • The glossary’s translation process
  • How this glossary has been (and can be) implemented at any organization
