Travel At High Altitude - Translators Required!



Posted by Jeremy Windsor on Apr 21, 2020

Chris Smith has been in touch with an appeal...

Is there anyone out there who's willing to help us prepare new translations of Travel At High Altitude? For those of you who don't know, the booklet was originally written by MEDEX members in order to provide readers with a simple guide as to the effects of high altitude upon the human body. It contains a mixture of information, some of which is for general interest, some of which is vital and may help save lives. The aim has always been to make the booklet freely available to as many people as possible - trekkers, mountaineers, skiers and cyclists - everyone! With almost 20 translations* now available, the booklet has proved incredibly popular. Nevertheless, we want to spread the word even further and need help to prepare new translations! All suggestions considered!


Please get in touch and we'll pass your information on to Chris.


*Translations completed:

English, Greek, Serbian, Dutch, Italian, Swahili, Spanish, Polish, Nepali, German, Swedish, Persian, French, Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin, Czech, Russian and Bulgarian.


Translations partially completed (help needed):

Turkish, Danish, Portuguese, Thai, Hindi, Arabic and Hebrew
