Dear Colleague,

We hope this message finds you well. Thanks for your continuing support in helping to share information about COVID-19. This communications update is particularly aimed at sharing, and drawing your attention to the COVID-19 public health information translated resources. We would be very grateful for your help in sharing these resources as widely as possible with relevant communities.

Translated COVID-19 Resources
For those whose first language is neither English nor Irish, we have translated public health information into 24 other languages. These include Albanian, Arabic, Bulgarian, Simplified Chinese, Czech, Farsi, French, Georgian, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Kurdish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Pashto, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Urdu and Yoruba. We are also working on developing resources in Somali and Eritrean.

The most up to date translated partner resources for COVID-19 can be found here.

Under the resources listed above you will also find a video for the Roma Community in Romanian. This video can also be found here.

There is a Roma specific resources page which includes easy read and image based communication documents and a translation of the Phase 1 government re-opening roadmap which can be found here.

There is also a Migrant Health resources page, which includes videos in various languages and further specific translated resources.
