Health information in other languages

You can translate most pages of this website, using Google Translate, into more than 90 languages by clicking the 'select language' link at the top of the page and selecting your language. You will need Javascript enabled for this to work.

The translation is done by Google Translate, which is a 'machine translation' engine that uses mathematical algorithms when translating. As a result, the translated text is not of the same quality as if it had been translated by a human translator. This also means that there is a difference in quality of translation between the languages.

However, as the technology behind Google Translate improves, the quality of the translation will improve too.
