New Language Added to UniversalDoctor Mobile App – Now with 13 Languages


It’s not hard to understand why the new language in our app has been in such high demand. This new language is spoken natively in one of the most popular tourist destinations in both summer and winter seasons. This country is known for its breathtaking landscapes, ancient history, delicious food, plenty of great wine and romance at every turn. Haven’t guessed it yet?

 …. We’re talking about ITALY !

We’re excited to announce that we have added ITALIAN to our UniversalDoctor Speaker mobile application. Watch our video below to see how you can use UniversalDoctor Speaker to help you when you travel.

Now with 13 languages, bring our app wherever you travel and we can help you communicate with a doctor in over 120 countries around the world. Never worry about having a data connection as all the content in UniversalDoctor Speaker is 100% offline. Our app comes with over 6,000 phrases with audios by native speakers to translate your medical visits. Just choose your language from the Patient menu and the  language of the Doctor from the 13 languages available, and you’re all set. Use the search function to find the phrase you need immediately, or use our organized system of translations designed to facilitate the translation of your medical visit. Explain your symptoms accurately and with ease, and understand your diagnosis and treatment in your own language. You can also use the app to translate your medical conditions, allergies and prescriptions. All our translations and audios are made by native speakers, while the phrases themselves have been reviewed by medical professionals.

So go explore the ancient streets of Rome, or the vineyards of Florence and the romantic canals of Venice… and know that you have a handy medical translator right on your phone – ready to make communication easier when you need it most!

Summer Travels: Seeking Medical Care in Foreign Countries

wordcloud_treatmentScreen Shot 2013-08-06 at 10.41.08 AM

Summertime is here (along with the heat wave!) and that means vacations are starting for many. This also means it’s peak tourist season as many of us will be traveling to different places around the globe, hoping to find that particularly special escape from our daily lives. So what will it be this year – are you off to a hot or cold destination?

No matter the destination (or the weather), there is one thing every traveller thinks about, especially if they’re traveling with their family to foreign destinations – safety. Do you have the tools and information you need to travel safely and securely? One important aspect of safety is our health. Research has shown that roughly half of overseas travelers develop medical problems during their journey. What would happen if you or a loved one got sick? What if you had to seek medical care in a foreign country?

A multilingual healthcare communication solution in your pocket

Our team here at UniversalDoctor thinks about this constantly, always looking at how we can use our core strengths to help you stay in good health, even abroad. That’s why we developed a mobile application that uses the technology of our multilingual software system for Hospitals.

It’s called:  UniversalDoctor Speaker: Medical Translator with Audio

UD portal button

What does it do?

Well, it’s the most comprehensive mobile medical translator app –  with thousands of sentences and native audios in 13 languages to facilitate medical visits in over 120 countries. That’s over 60% of the world’s countries! It covers every step of medical visits, whether you’re in a hospital or primary care clinic, starting from accurately explaining your symptoms to understanding your diagnosis and treatment. How do we do this? By providing translations from both the patient side and the doctor side that are organized in a way to facilitate multilingual communication between you and a doctor.

That’s not all, the app also features:

  • SEARCH – a search function helping you find the phrase you need in an emergency,
  • TRANSLATE YOUR HEALTH – the capacity to translate your medical conditions, allergies and prescriptions,
  • OFFLINE MODE – the app works entirely offline so you don’t need any connection or data plan to use the app.

And best of all, it doesn’t add any weight to your suitcase as it operates directly from your mobile device (iPhone or iPad… Android version coming soon!).


Now you may have noticed that we said 13 languages earlier, but there are 12 currently in the app… that’s because we’re just about to launch a NEW language that has been in very high demand by our users and will come in very handy during the upcoming vacation season!

Keep your eye on this blog to find out which new language we’re adding very soon…


UniversalDoctor Upgrades to 12 Languages with Addition of Polish


If you have never been to Poland, now might be the time to travel there with peace of mind. UniversalDoctor Speaker for iPhone and iPad has just been upgraded to now offer 12 languages, with Polish being our newest addition. Polish is the 2nd most widely spoken Slavic language, after Russian and before Ukrainian.

Poland is one of the most linguistically homogenous European countries with nearly 97% of Poland’s citizens stating Polish as their mother language. Outside of Poland, there are roughly 20 million people of Polish ancestry living abroad, making the Polish diaspora one of the largest in the world. In England and Wales, there are over 500,000 people who consider Polish to be their main language. Other major Polish diasporas can be found in Germany, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, France, Sweden, Ireland, the United States, Canada and Brazil… just to name a few!

As a patient who is traveling, or a healthcare professional who is often treating Polish people, UniversalDoctor Speaker can help facilitate medical visits between Polish and the 11 other languages in the application (English, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Romanian, Portuguese, Catalan, Chinese, Japanese and Arabic).


UniversalDoctor Speaker: Medical Translator with Audio


Don’t let a health problem or chronic condition keep you from traveling to new places with foreign languages. Download UniversalDoctor Speaker today to have a mobile medical translator in your pocket with 12 languages (and more coming soon!). You decide the language you want to communicate in by choosing the patient language and the doctor language.





Bring your Traveling Medical Record with you

Bring your Traveling Medical Record with you

We are travelling more and more all the time. Increasingly more people travel for business reasons, tourism, a short break, or a year’s sabbatical….and on all these trips there is one thing they never leave behind: their mobile phone.

Today our cell phone is our communication centre, our camera, our music equipment, our video camera. Now it can also be our particular medical assistant, our interpreter for health matters – even our medical records.

In a place that features a language you cannot speak, or in a country where your language is not known or hardly used, a health problem, the need to visit a doctor, or, in the worse case, a hospital admission, can be a serious, even critical, situation.

The language barrier can be a very important drawback in such a scenario.

That is why at UniversalDoctor we are continually improving our mobile applications. The UniversalDoctor Speaker for iPhone app is already proving highly useful to thousands and thousands of travelers and physicians around the world.

With UniversalDoctor on your iPhone you can explain many medical aspects in multiple languages. Wherever you go, if you require medical assistance or have to communicate with doctors, our application will help you take the first steps in a new health system.

You can also carry your medical records and treatment (prescriptions, etc.) with you in all the languages available on the application.

Choose the patient language and the health personnel language for problem-free communication. From now on you can travel with greater peace of mind.
