For Consumers

Resources in Foreign Languages

FDA offers easy-to-read publications in Spanish and other languages that you can access online or print and share.

Sixty million Americans age 5 and over speak a language other than English at home, and 7 percent of Americans don't speak English at all. At FDA, we want to ensure that all people have access to important health information.

Language Access Program

At FDA, we continue to find new ways to meet our diverse population's needs. We know that it is important for consumers to have information that is easy to read and available in a variety of languages and formats. That's why we created the Language Access Program to oversee implementation of the Language Access Plan: an evolving blueprint to provide people with limited English proficiency easy access to health information in a language and manner that they understand.

We are increasing the amount of consumer information available in other languages and making it accessible from any device.
