Multilingual Mini-Glossaries

glossary400

We, interpreters, love words and, yet, never seem to have enough time for an in-depth research. Wouldn’t it be great if right before an appointment we can grab a brief, reliable, user-friendly bilingual glossary that has words, terms and phrases most frequently used by providers and patients at that type of an appointment?!

This is how the idea of medical mini-glossaries was born. Our volunteer Lois Feuerle and the two Commissioners, Virginia Perez-Santalla and Karin Ruschke, spearheaded this project. Yet, it’s up to interpreters like you to create the English mini-glossaries and translate them into as many languages as possible.

During the first phase of the project, the CCHI Mini-Glossaries will consist of 50-101 words and terms. They’ll be organized thematically around an appointment type, in a logical sequence rather than alphabetically.

 

We do need your help to make this project thrive! Please send us (to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) your suggestions about:

  • translating the existing mini-glossaries into your language (attachments are accepted; let us know what font you use),
  • adding new terms to the existing mini-glossaries (remember, the maximum is 101),
  • better translation or another translation of any term listed in any existing mini-glossary,
  • which appointment-type we should create a glossary for, etc.

We are also looking for volunteers of different languages to form language-specific Terminology Committees for this project. If you are interested, please sign up online at http://www.cchicertification.org/get-involved/get-involved and specify “Mini-Glossaries Project” in the appropriate field.
