Content vendor Thomson Reuters has expanded the availability of its Micromedex patient education materials in English and Spanish to 13 additional languages.

The materials, called CareNotes, now are in enough languages to meet the needs of more than 80 percent of the U.S. non-English speaking population, according to the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based company.

The newly supported languages are Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), French (Canadian), German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Turkish and Vietnamese.
