Translations are an important way to share information, knowledge, and ideas with people who do not speak English as their primary language. Good translation keeps the meaning of the message, style, and manner. Cultural adaptation involves reviewing and changing the structure of the resources, program, or practice to fit the needs and preferences of a particular cultural group or community. Together, translations and cultural adaptations can improve the accessibility of materials and engage families from under-served communities. The primary objective of this workshop is to provide cultural and plain language tools and an overview of several strategies to improve translation and create culturally adaptive materials that resonate with diverse audiences. This workshop features hands-on activities to practice developing culturally responsive materials, using real-life examples from our network.
