Translation Task Force

The Healthcare Translation Task Force – brings high quality, easy to understand health information to as many languages as possible. It originated as a joint venture between Wiki Project Med Foundation and Translators Without Borders in 2011. Together we translated over 1,900 articles and worked in nearly 100 languages! This translated content is getting about 40 million views a year.

In 2021 this project is being relaunched within the MDWiki - Wikipedia environment, using an internal translation dashboard. Simple open the dashboard, change the target language to your desired language (using the two letter language code) and hit "Do it". Once the list of missing articles is generated, hit the "translate" link beside the article you wish to work on. Please note, you will need to be logged into your Wikipedia account for this to work.
