Only about 6% of the world’s population are native English speakers while 75% don't speak English at all. English alone isn’t enough when it comes to making evidence accessible to our target audience: the entire world. We rely on the hard work of local groups for translations, many who contribute voluntarily. As our Reviews are lengthy documents, translators focus on the abstract and Plain Language Summary sections.
