General notes for translators: (DO NOT TRANSLATE)
• The goal is to create a translation that is technically accurate, sounds natural to
a native speaker when spoken aloud, and is readily understandable by native speakers in the target language and culture.
• These scripts are intended to be read by a native speaker into a camera to
produce a video. If your language has a difference between spoken and written
forms, create a script that documents the words the presenter should say when they speak the message into the camera (the "for speaking" forms), even if that is not how you would write if the document were intended to be read silently.
• Use your judgment in translating abbreviations (such as AIDS). Some languages
like French wil have their own abbreviation (SIDA). Other languages may use the
English abbreviation "AIDS" as-is. Other languages may not use abbreviations at all, and it may be best to use the full term ("Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome ") as rendered in the target language or a shortened form that is in common usage.
• Please try to make your translations consistent with how doctors and public
health authorities in your target language / culture are using terms when they talk about HIV/AIDS. Please check with public health sites for your target language or medical doctors or nurses who are native speakers where necessary to clarify correct translations.
• Some scripts like the "Crystal Methamphetamine and HIV" include English slang
terms. In those cases, please identify any slang names for the drug used in the target language. If no such terms exist or can be identified, that phrase will be skipped in translation.
EXPLANATION, DEFINITION, OR NOTES FOR REFERENCE BY
