European Day of Languages and showcasing our multi-language information

In this blog, Content Performance manager Abi talks about European Day of Languages and signposts to our translated cancer information.

Today is European Day of Languages - a day designed to showcase the richness of the many different languages across Europe. It is also an opportunity to honour and promote multilingualism and language learning.

With the current unsettled mood and cost of living crisis unfolding across Europe, it is more important than ever for us to show our support to people who may need our cancer information in different languages.

We offer a range of 16 fact sheets about cancer in different languages to support people who don’t speak English.

New European languages launched

Due to increasing demand, we have recently added Ukrainian and Turkish to our range of core languages. We hope these help to meet people’s needs and provide them with top-quality cancer information.
