Update on stem cell outreach & education program SCOPE: great global coverage, but more translators needed

I’ve been working for a couple years on SCOPE, the Stem Cell Outreach Program for Education. Our motto is “stem cells not lost in translation!”

This program aims to provide concise and clear educational materials about stem cells to as many readers across the world in their native languages as possible.

To date, we have 19 languages covering most of the globe!

This achievement is all the more remarkable because every translation was done by a volunteer translator, costing no money.

We still are in need of more languages including in particular Arabic and Swahili. However, any language not on the list would be appreciated. The stem cell white paper to be translated is relatively short (a couple pages).

A huge thanks to all my volunteer translators out there!
