Cancer Council Translates Into Different Languages
Wednesday, 20th June 2012 at 2:49 pm

The Cancer Council Australia has launched a website to assist Australians from linguistically diverse backgrounds to access cancer information in their own language.

The Culturally And Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Cancer Resource Directory is a searchable online library of 600 publications, videos and websites and provides a wide range of information including cancer prevention, treatment and support in 50 different languages.

Cancer Council Australia CEO Professor Ian Olver said the directory was designed to provide a
single point of access to cancer resources in Australia published in languages other than
English.

“Cancer doesn’t discriminate by culture,” Olver said.

“One in four Australians is born overseas and we know that migrants diagnosed with cancer have poorer cancer outcomes than comparable non-migrant groups, with lower screening and survival rates.”

CALD Patient Support Coordinator Anna Epifanio said the site itself was in English, but
provided information in a range of languages including Arabic,Chinese, Greek, Italian,
Macedonian, and Vietnamese.

“The CALD Cancer Resource Directory will be particularly helpful to health professionals who
are looking for credible and reliable information to provide to their patients,” Epifanio said.

“Searches can be conducted by resource type (fact sheet, video, website), category (screening,
prevention, treatment) keyword and title, and whether the resource has been designed for
health professionals or the public.

“New resources can be submitted via the website and will be reviewed by Cancer Council for
inclusion.”
