Below you will find a list of OpenHIE resources that could benefit from being translated for our global community. This list is a sort of a "wish list" and an opportunity for those looking for ways to contribute to the community and the global efforts toward health information exchange. Please review our Translation Policy & Volunteer Opportunity to see how to get started in this process. 


We have been focusing our translation efforts from English to Spanish, French, German, and Chinese. As these were the top languages identified on our website from analytical data. While we welcome translations across all languages that community members speak and would be willing to translate materials into, the global OpenHIE community would greatly appreciate support in the translations of those four identified languages.

Artifacts for Translation

High Priority for Translation

The following are cornerstone artifacts for the community that are at the top of our wish list for translation into languages beyond English. Currently these artifacts are only available in English and we welcome the opportunity for these to be translated into other languages.
ArtifactDescription of ArtifactTranslation Update
OpenHIE Architecture Specification 

The specification outlines the following:  

  1. Logical OpenHIE Architecture Diagram*
  2. Definitions of OpenHIE components capabilities 
  3. Data exchange patterns and standards

2021 Roadmap 

  1. Add data exchange standards and specifications for point-of care systems
  2. Add patterns for supply chain exchanges 
  3. Add the rest of this information into the specification 

*The Architecture Diagram is one of our top priorities in translating. If a volunteer would like to translate pieces of the specification, the diagram by itself would be a great option that would be very helpful to the community.

This artifact is available in English and has not been translated into other languages.
