To do this, we rely on the hard work of our teams around the world, who translate Cochrane Reviews into their languages. The majority of our projects run entirely on volunteer time. Thanks to our local teams, we have published more than 13,000 translations on our websites to date.translation strategy Your role As a volunteer translator your job is to make Cochrane Reviews available in your language. As our Reviews are large documents, translations are usually limited to the abstract and plain language summary (PLS) parts of the Review. Aimed at a broad readership, PLS convey the review question and the findings in terms that are accessible to consumers and non-expert readers.Cochrane Reviews You will work closely with the translation project manager for your language, who will be your main contact and advise you which Reviews are available for translation. You can tell them if you are interested in translating certain topics or Reviews. You work at your own pace, not to deadlines.
