Cochrane volunteers translate our reviews from English in to other languages to help us make oral health care evidence more widely accessible.

In March 2018 (Issue 3)Cochrane translators produced one translated oral health review abstract each in Simplified Chinese, Croatian, Japanese and Malay. Cochrane translators also produced an oral health evidence summary podcast in Malay.
