Being able to communicate with patients in such a simple and fast way is super important. It does so much for my job and for the patient, which I think is the most important thing! It’s a source of security for me as a nurse and for the patient who becomes aware of what is happening.

At THIVA, we take care of patients from many different countries. Sometimes we use Care to Translate. The app contains a variety of languages and common phrases used in healthcare. It’s easy to use and highly appreciated by both healthcare professionals and patients.

Thiva Nurse

It’s an absolutely amazing app with so many great expressions and phrases that are useful in my work. It’s not always possible to have an interpreter present, or the interpreter isn’t so good with medical expressions. Then it’s great to have an app that can do the job just as well. I’m so impressed and grateful!

Caroline, Radiology Technologist

I’ve used the app myself several times, especially in the emergency room where you don’t always have time to wait for an interpreter to arrive or have the time to call them on the telephone. I also think it’s great that the patient can both read the translation and also listen to what is being said.

Josefin, Nurse

Let’s talk about language barriers and fever. At my current job in a (Swedish) pediatric emergency room, the most common condition is fever. Body temperature is an objective measure and it’s always good to ask if the fever has come on suddenly. Some families don’t speak Swedish or English and in those moments the Care to Translate app makes my job so much easier.

For emergency situations you’ll never be able to plan for. Anastomotic leakage and other complications that need to be addressed as soon as possible. The patient needs information quickly and you don’t have time to wait for an interpreter. Try the app!

Annika, Nurse

As an anesthesiologist nurse, I want my patients to feel safe. Language can sometimes be a problem, but with Care to Translate I can introduce myself and tell the patient who I am and what profession I have. With simple questions that the patient understands, I can create a feeling of security and confidence in the anesthetic.

This app will definitely help me during my internship. Especially in the radiology department, where many patients from varying backgrounds come in for short visits.

Amanda, Radiology Technologist

In Swedish healthcare, you often meet patients whose native tongue isn’t Swedish. Especially in the emergency room where I work. With this app, you can easily communicate with patients and provide information. For example, carry out various examinations and treatments.
