NU Online News Service, Oct. 10, 2003, 3:23 p.m. EDT – MetLife Inc., New York, has helped scholars at the University of the Pacific dental school develop a free, multi-lingual health history form that comes in 21 languages.

Patients can answer the questions in one language by circling “yes” and “no” responses. A dentist who speaks another language can see how the patients answered by using a key written in the second language.

Translations now are available in Arabic, Chinese, Creole, English, Farsi, French, German, Hebrew, Hmong, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Laotian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Tagalog, Thai and Vietnamese.

University of Pacific researchers hope to add forms in 11 more languages by the end of the year, MetLife says.
