Aim and Purpose

Developing educational content for  the general public and professionals alike is a vital part of the MIND Foundation’s work. One aspect of it comes to life through high-quality translations to existing articles on the MIND Blog.
In doing so, communities that are less focused on English-language science communications will enter the scope of our public discourse on altered states of consciousness, psychedelic research, application, and implementation. This provides communities across the globe with easy access to evidence-based information that might otherwise be locked behind language barriers.

Help us share knowledge and support people in educating themselves about relevant topics on mental health and well-being.

Translation Process

The MIND Foundation upholds high standards in the quality of our content. This includes all contributions and translations to be published on the MIND Blog.
Therefore, every translation follows a six-eyes principle throughout a three-steps process to assure quality articles in a variety of languages. Every step is supported by the Blog Translation Coordination team and our translation guidelines.

Post-publication improvements to translations are of course possible whenever necessary.
