Translators without Borders are identifying key terminology that people use to talk about COVID-19 as well as commonly-used technical terms to develop a multilingual glossary. The glossary is designed to assist field workers and interpreters engaging with communities to raise awareness about COVID-19. It aims to improve communication between responders and affected communities by providing accurate translations of useful terminology related to the disease outbreak.
