Our simple goal: to connect better with patients

As Care to Translate marks its sixth anniversary, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on our journey so far.

We started off with a simple goal: to connect better with patients. We wanted to make sure that their needs are understood and help them understand the healthcare staff. That simple desire to improve communication laid the groundwork for what would become Care to Translate.

Starting out as a non-profit, we soon realized that we needed to find a more sustainable path. Transitioning into a company wasn't an easy decision, but it allowed us to grow faster and tackle the challenges of healthcare translation with more resources at hand. Today, we are thrilled to re-engage with the non-profit community, offering our product for free to support others in their daily work.

Joris Van Hamme, Medical Project Coordinator at Médecins du Monde Belgique, says:

“For our beneficiaries, the language barrier is an important reason for not being able to access their right to quality health care. With this partnership, we will have access to an extra tool to improve communication with our beneficiaries in moments when we aren't able to organize translators or intercultural mediators.”

When starting a company you always face many challenges: from juggling priorities to dealing with limited resources. But with careful planning, steadfast determination, and amazing support from our team, investors, advisors and all users and customers, we managed to push through.

Thank you for believing in us, it means the world!

Over the past six years, Care to Translate has evolved from a small initiative to a global platform, reaching more than 700.000 individuals and healthcare providers around the world. In 2023 alone, we had new users in over 150 countries and are thrilled to collaborate with healthcare organizations in 9 markets so far.

Testimonials attest to the tangible benefits of our platform, from alleviating staff stress to enhancing patient safety and operational efficiency. Read more about what our customers say:

"We couldn't have done it without you. And looking ahead, we're excited to keep innovating and making health care more accessible for everyone." says Maja Magnusson, CEO of Care to Translate. 

Celebrating six years of Care to Translate, we're filled with gratitude for the journey so far and excitement for what lies ahead. As the translation industry continues to evolve, we're committed to staying ahead of the curve and finding new ways to break down language barriers in health care.

Here's to many more years of breaking down barriers and making a difference in health care worldwide!
