European Lung Foundation


Factsheets and website copy pertaining to lung health and aimed at the general public localised into 8 European languages.

The European Lung Foundation (ELF) was founded by the European Respiratory Society (ERS) in 2000 as a non-profit organisation with the aim of bringing together patients, the public and respiratory professionals to positively influence respiratory medicine.

Factsheets and website copy pertaining to lung health and aimed at the general public are localised by Web-Translations into 7 European languages.  The factsheets are also uploaded to the website, forming an ensemble of useful resources to share developments in lung health research in clear and straightforward language.

Localised Factsheets

Web-Translations provides us with a reliable service to help us provide patient information in 7 different languages. The team of translators are prompt and reliable, delivering text within our often tight deadlines. All texts are reviewed by our own reviewers and we find there are usually minimal changes from the original text. The process for translations is smooth and efficient, which is a great benefit for our small team; minimising our workload, whilst maintaining 8 different language websites.
