Translated Public Health Factsheets

Translation Toolkit

The Office of Public Health Strategy and Communications (OPHSC) coordinates the translation of written materials department wide. To assist DPH staff with translating documents, the Office has developed the following guidance. Although specific to health-related documents, this process may be helpful to other programs/agencies when engaging a translator.

Translation Glossaries

The OPHSC maintains three general glossaries in Spanish, Portuguese and French of terms commonly used by DPH programs. Please utilize these lists when translating documents for the Department of Public Health.

Translation Presentations

OPHSC has developed the following presentation to facilitate the implementation of the Translation Guidelines.
