The Languages of Covid-19: Implications for Global Healthcare
Project Description

This British Academy-funded project examines the role that modern languages and translation studies can play in revealing new ways of thinking about and communicating Covid-19. Focusing on the language used in multilingual healthcare settings, international public health campaigns, and by patients across the globe, the project analyses what new facets or understandings of the disease might be revealed by a linguistic and cultural encounter with non-anglophone languages and societies.

Translational Perspective

The project draws on the experience of practitioners (translators, interpreters, healthcare professionals) and considers the benefits of a multilingual appreciation of Covid-19 for public health messages and medical treatments.
