Help us translate Web4Health to additional languages
Web4Health contains about 900 answers to common questions in the area of psychology and mental health. Most of the answers are available in German, English and Swedish, the answers have also partially been translated to Greek, Finnish, Italian, Russian and Polish. More info on available languages. The web site has about five million visitors and one and a half million page downloads/month.
Most of the work on developing the web site is unpaid voluntary work of medical and technical experts. The cost is partially paid for by income from advertisements on the web site. At various times, we have also had different kinds of government funding for developing part of the web site.
We seek people who are willing to help with full or partial translation of the web site to additional languages, and also to translate more of its answers to Finnish, Greek and Italian and write new informational texts for the web site.
Translators should be capable of translating psychology information text. Best is if you are a psychologist, psychotherapist or psychiatrist or can have such a version supervise your work. Texts may need to be adjusted to the local culture of your language area. We have found that in particular the texts about addictive drug use had to be written in different ways for different cultures with different views on these issues.
We cannot pay you for this work, but you can ask for grants from your government for doing the translation. You can also get a free advertisement for you on our pages in your language as payment for the translation work.
Some of the translation work of the existing web site has been done by psychology apprentices, who have to do psychological work as part of their education, and translation for this site has then been part of that work (in combination with other psychology and psychotherapy work).
To completely translate the whole web site would require about one person year of work. But it is possible to do only part of this work. Site visitors will then be shown the English answers for questions whose answers have not been translated.
We need translators from Swedish to English, from Swedish or English to Finnish, Greek and Italian and also translators for novel languages which are not at present supported by the web site.
