of our most popular information resources for people living with HIV are now
available in lots of other languages! You can find them all at www.aidsmap.com/translations.
several years, we’ve been working on this huge range of resources with
translators, people living with HIV, HIV support organisations, doctors and
nurses in other countries.
and The basics series
illustrated series of leaflets, The basics, is designed to
support conversations between people living with HIV and health professionals.
The simple language and concise text present a particular challenge for
translation – and in some languages the complicated design presented another
challenge! Our designer and the people working on the translations worked
really hard to adapt these resources to each language and the end results are
fantastic, with over 150 titles available. We especially love how they look in Arabic
information booklet series is
widely read and covers key topics in more detail. Undertaking translations of
these booklets was a significant task for the individuals and organisations we
worked with and we are very grateful for all the work they did to make them so
useful. For some languages there are multiple booklet titles available – there
are as many as nine translated into French
and seven in Spanish.
know that many people who speak languages other than English visit aidsmap.com
and we hope that these resources will support them in learning about HIV and
their health and treatment. All the resources are written with the treatment
and care situation in Europe in mind, but much of the information is relevant
to people wherever they live.
also hope that these translated resources will be useful for people who don’t
speak these languages! We regularly hear from people who work in clinics and
support organisations, who are looking for reliable translated information to
share with the people in their care who don’t speak English as their first
language. These resources will, we hope, go some way towards meeting that need.
addition to these information resources, some other translated materials are available
on our language pages, in particular in French,
Spanish, Portuguese and Russian. For example, our Antiretroviral
drugs chart – popular with both people with HIV and with clinicians – is
available in these languages. We send out our monthly email bulletin HIV
prevention news: Europe in five languages too, as well as bulletins from key international
conferences covering HIV.
also maintain listings of HIV and related services all over the world through
our e-atlas (www.aidsmap.com/e-atlas).
As part of the ongoing development of the e-atlas, we are working with the
listed organisations to upload and link to information resources they produce
and over time these will also be made available through the relevant language

country pages of the e-atlas for more.
