Cochrane is a non-profit organisation, and thrives on the enthusiasm of volunteers. You can also get involved!
Translating Plain Language Summaries
It is Cochrane’s ambition to spread its collected evidence as wide as possible. One strategy to do so is the addition of a Plain Language Summary to each of its reviews, which lowers the threshold for a broader audience to consult Cochrane reviews. Translating Cochrane evidence, and specifically the Plain Language Summary, from English to other languages is a priority for Cochrane, as this helps lowering the threshold for non-native English speakers.
Cochrane Belgium is currently looking for volunteers to join the French translation team. If you are interested, don’t hesitate to contact us! No prior experience or knowledge is required.
