Translate Cochrane evidence

Only 6% of the world speak English as a first language, and 75% do not speak English at all. Therefore, we translate Cochrane evidence to make it more accessible worldwide. Several hundred volunteer translators have already translated thousands of Cochrane Reviews into their languages. If you want to help us and join our worldwide network of translators, we would love to have you.
