Polyglot Med Spanish is easy to use and the perfect tool to bridge the communication gap between health care providers and Spanish-speaking patients. Polyglot Med Spanish offers immediate audio translation of over 3,000 common words, phrases and assessment questions from English to Spanish and from Spanish to English.

While you are sitting in a café or waiting at the airport, you can practice medical words, phrases, or entire assessment questions! If you have to conduct a mental health assessment or a prenatal assessment on a Spanish speaking patient, we have the phrases you need to get started. Polyglot Med Spanish offers phrases categorized in conversations to allow the health care provider to practice a series of assessment or conversational questions structured to solicit a “yes” or “no” response.

With over 3,000 grammatically correct medical terms and phrases, Polyglot Med Spanish is sure to have the word, phrase or question you need no matter what your clinical setting.

You can find a video review of the app here:


I agree that the Polyglot software is intended as an audio language guide for the sole uses of 1) English-speaking health care personnel learning and practicing Spanish phrases that may be relevant to providing medical care to Spanish-speaking patients or 2) Spanish-speaking health care personnel learning English phrases that may be relevant to providing medical care to English-speaking patients. Polyglot is not intended to be used for directly conversing with patients or their families and is not intended as a substitute for trained health care translators. The Duke University School of Medicine is not responsible for any language errors in the software or for its use other than for its intended purposes.

    Saving a phrase to favorites does nothing. Phrases and vocab seem decent so far.

    I'm pretty impressed with this app. Only negative so far is that it won't save anything into the favorites section. Which for me is a bit frustrating as there are a lot of phrases to filter through. Please fix and I will give this app five stars!

    Could more phrases for chronic diseases like CHF, COPD, CRF, DIABETES, ETC be added?
