What is Canopy Speak?

Canopy Speak, available for iPhone and Android phones, is a new translation app that has won an award from the NIH. Try using it to bridge any communication gaps with your patients or clients.

From the Canopy web site:

Interactive Phrase Library

The phrase library is the largest corpus of pre-translated medical phrases ever developed, organized by frequently encountered procedures and medical specialties, and available in text and audio in 15 languages. Use the phrases to break the ice with a patient before the interpreter arrives or for basic instruction for an exam during rounds.

Connect with Live Interpreters

The "Call Interpreter" function provides a seamless channel directly to your facility's over-the-phone interpreter line.


Canopy Speak currently has 10 sections: General, Anesthesia, Dentistry, Dermatology, Emergency Medicine, General Surgery, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Pediatrics.
