International Collaboration and Translations


International Collaboration and Translations

The Academy is committed to international collaboration and, since 2005, has hosted several meetings and workshops for representatives from the international dietetic community to share their questions and concerns relating to the NCP and Terminology. In 2012, a small group of international representatives were invited to form the International Workgroup that relates to the NCPT Committee and holds regular monthly teleconferences focusing on the growing needs of the international community. The workgroup currently represents eight countries and two international federations and serves in an advisory role to the NCPT Committee. In 2013, the NCPT Committee elected two international representatives from the workgroup to participate with the NCPT Committee as voting members in order to bring a global perspective to each item of business the committee considers.

These international efforts have increased worldwide NCPT implementation dramatically. NCPT is currently being used or taught in diverse locations including Australia, Canada, Denmark, Greece, Iceland, France, Finland, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom.

The terminology has been translated into 11 languages and dialects: Chinese, Danish, British English, French (Canada), German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish (Mexico), and Swedish.  The eNCPT has been translated into several languages, summarized below, and available to all subscribers to the eNCPT.  To learn more about how your country can translate the content of the eNCPT, download the document below.
