Cochrane Library

In September 2018 (Issue 9), Cochrane Oral Health published:

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

In September 2018 (Issue 9),  Cochrane translators produced a translated oral health review abstract each in Portuguese, Spanish and Russian, and one translated oral health review podcast in Croatian.
