Students’ translation work contributes to national campaign being Highly Commended.
Date: 10 October 2018
A national campaign launched to promote the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), an anti-HIV pill, has been highly commended by the British Medical Association’s Patient Information Awards.
The campaign is led by Prepster, a volunteer group of London-based HIV prevention activists, to promote the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), an anti-HIV pill.
Iwona Budzyńska, one of the students, said: “In the last academic year my fellow colleagues from BA Translation course and I had this amazing opportunity to show off our linguistic skills and translate the website content of PrEPster’s "5 Things to know about the IMPACT Trial" into six European languages.
“Since then the website was shortlisted for the BMA Patient Information Awards. I feel very proud to be a part of this highly recognized project and more so, because I am planning to specialize as a medical translator.”
The page is available in French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Polish.
