Translate Wikipedia articles from one language to another to help more people learn.
Step 1: Find a Wikipedia article to translate

The grid shows several high-priority hearing topics and whether they exist in the 20 most spoken languages plus Swedish. (Mouse-over the language codes at the top of the table to see the full names of the languages.) You can also check out the longer worklist for more articles to translate!

Additionally, you can browse existing articles about hearing, or look at the participant-generated list of suggestions.

Remember, you don't have to translate the whole article! Translating even a paragraph or two makes knowledge freely available where there was none in these languages before! Note that not all articles are of equal quality and that some may need improvement in English before translation.

The following hearing-related articles have short summaries to translate as part of the the Medical Translation Project. Links to the summaries: Hearing loss, Tinnitus, Otitis media, Otitis externa, Ménière's disease, Vertigo, Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, Carbon monoxide poisoning, Quinine.
