Coronavirus messages need to be translated

It is not enough to issue clear information about Coronavirus to fight the pandemic. Your critical messages must be clearly understood if you want people to follow your recommendations, guidelines or requirements. It is hence key to have them available in the languages of all target groups.

Here are 6 reasons to translate your communications about Coronavirus

  1. Messages about Coronavirus are vital. As such, they need to be perfectly understood. If not, they could put the population at extra risk.
  2. Their content is emotional. It is hence essential to pass information in the mother tongue of the recipients.
  3. The COVID-19 spread is a global phenomenon. Translated messages can be reused or recycled by others, for other target groups using the same target languages.
  4. We live in a multicultural society. If you want the message to be spread as it should, you must cover all languages spoken by your target group.
  5. Even healthcare practitioners prefer to read in their native language. So, English is not always enough for scientific information.
  6. There are still many international travelers. Good information in the mother language is even more important for this group of potential virus carriers.
