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

In May 2017 (Issue 5)Cochrane translators translated one oral health review in to Simplified Chinese, two oral health reviews in to Croatian, two oral health reviews in to French, 10 oral health reviews in to Malay, one oral health review in to Polish, and one oral health review in to Russian. Cochrane translators also translated an oral health evidence summary podcast in to Croatian.
