The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics collaborates with international dietetic associations and their translating entities (collaborators, consultants or other able professionals appointed by the associations) in an effort to make the Nutrition Care Process Terminology a global language with international usage. These collaborrations have led to the availability of eNCPT translations in the following languages, respectively: Swedish, German (Switzerland), French (Canada), Norwegian (Norway), Danish (Denmark), Simplified Chinese (China), and Traditional Chinese (Taiwan). The folowing eNCPT translations are in progress: Spanish (Mexico) and Portuguese (Brazil). 

The Academy welcomes additional translations of the eNCPT.
