Crowd translation network for Ebola outbreak

WeObservatory Blog

UniversalDoctor has launched a non-profit initiative for the Ebola outbreak: Translation4Outbreaks.

Translations 4 Outbreaks is a crowd-translation platform to translate Ebola information for patients and medical personnel into as many languages as possible. The platform harnesses the language skills of people from across the world (the ‘crowd’) by making it easy for them to help translate important healthcare and outbreak information into different languages.

The content of the Ebola messages on the platform comes from different public health authorities (CDC, MSF etc) who provide credible information on Ebola. All translations will be offered as free PDFs on the website for anyone to download and use.

Applications are accepted from people all over the world to help with this crowd-translation effort so if you would be interested in helping, spread the word !
