When you use Care to Translate you can reduce the risk of:
- Misdiagnosis caused by language barriers
- Mistreatment due to misdiagnosis
- Complications due to lack of, or incorrect, communication
- Prolonged hospital stays (patients with limited language proficiency usually stay longer in the emergency room and in hospitals than the average patient)
- Increased readmissions (patients with limited language proficiency are 20% more likely to seek care within 72 hours after discharge)
- Increased costs as a result of the reasons above

It's the best apk if you don't have much knowledge of language and help you to provide an attention of greater quality in the services of health

Very helpful. My only minor complaint is that the premium version is a subscription rather than a single purchase, but don't let that put you off- the free version is also excellent. EDIT: More feedback Many of our patients are elderly and have poor hearing and/or eyesight and/or are in noisy environments. Suggestions: * Option for large text so patients can read translation. * Phonetic written translation so the provider can repeat the phrase out loud to the patient. * Option for volume boost

Absolutely useless app. There are like 3 words that are translated, everything else is available only on the Pro version. I don't understand why you would create a free app and then ask users to pay for using it for its most basic functions. Most of us are either health care professionals trying to help and communicate with our patients or patients desperately trying to express themselves in another language. This is just deceiving either group.

Hi Merine Agnes and thank you for your comment. The free app was developed by volunteers, and we have added premium content so that CTT can continue to evolve. All previously free content is still free to use. Our view is that employers should buy the app for their employees, but we still want the public to have access to it. Best, Agnes from CTT
