WE ARE MULTILINGUAL!
We are very excited to announce that the new IAPD website is now multilingual!
The IAPD recognizes and appreciates our global readership and the importance of having access to our website in your mother-tongue. With the help of statistical machine translations, Google Translate enables a wide range of translations on the IAPD’s website. Even though the translation is not official, this feature ensures that nearly every country represented within the association has access to the website in their native language. With over 100 different translation options, we invite you to visit the website and make use of this new feature! Simply click on the language selector at the top right corner.
As mentioned in October, our dedicated committees prepared a series of infographics to support parents during the pandemic, see the translations of our infographics here.
The official translations for the Consensus Recommendations are currently underway, and the newly translated documents will be available to you very soon!
