Welcome to MediBabble, a free, professional-grade medical translation tool. MediBabble is a robust history-taking and examination application designed to improve the safety, efficiency, and overall quality of care for non-English speaking patients. A timely and accurate history is the cornerstone of medical diagnosis and treatment; the relative difficulty of obtaining one with non-English speakers is a significant barrier to care. We believe that a portable, widely available, real-time communication solution — like MediBabble — has the potential for profound impact and is too important to sell. Which is why we're giving it away.

MediBabble currently downloads with Spanish included, with additional languages (Mandarin, Cantonese, Russian and Haitian Creole) available as free downloads from within the application.

- Contains thousands of translated questions and instructions all playable as high-quality audio recordings
- Thoughtfully organized by symptom to facilitate comprehensive or targeted medical history-taking all the way from chief complaint to review of systems
