In recognition of the significant cost of translating SNOMED CT, SNOMED International has put in place a policy to incentivise new and existing Members to consider the opportunities to translate some or all of the content. This will be done by arranging, subject to certain conditions, to reimburse 50% of the Member joining fee no later than three years after initiation of the translation development. For smaller member countries IHTSDO at its discretion may provide supplemental funding through the Member Development Fund. An agreement will be drawn up between the IHTSDO and the Member so that the conditions are clear and explicit.
SNOMED International has the application form and legal agreement in place, to allow member countries interested in applying for funding for translation activities.
Should you wish to pursue this, you should contact your regional Customer Relations Leads for more information.
