When you use Care to Translate you can reduce the risk of:

Thank you for your comment!

No respiratory therapist mentioned

Seems like a useful app, but whoever made it seems like they’ve never worked in a hospital because there is not a reference to a respiratory therapist??? I’d say that’s a pretty important position especially during a respiratory pandemic!!

Developer Response ,

Hello and thank you for your comment! Our team has experience from working in the healthcare sector and our phrases are also developed with clinics on a daily bases. We have not received the request about adding your suggestion before but we are happy to do so now :) Thank you for your feedback!

It’s in Arabic, how do I change it to English.

I just tried to see the app, but it shows everything in Arabic, and I speak English. Is there a way to clear it and let me see it in English? As it is, it is useless to me.

Developer Response ,

Hello! You can change the user language (the language you want to translate from) in Settings. Visit Settings through gear icon in the top left corner of the app. Then change user language by clicking the globe icon (it's left of the first menu option in Settings) and change to English. You can change target language (the language you want to translate to) the same way under Settings, or by tapping on the language in the heading on the start screen. Good luck and we hope you'll get much use of the app. If you have further questions, please contact us at or through our social medias and we'll help you from there! /Maja at Care to Translate
