xprompt provides an innovative translation assistance, for patients and medical care staff from different countries of origin.
Equal-rights communication, regardless of country of origin, sex, age, political preference, religion and social status.
xprompt is simple, trustable and enables faster communication. Phrases are carefully grouped into themes and sections, with tailored menus for care staff and patient. xprompt provides 800 phrases in total for each language pack that can be freely combined.
The phrases are translated into the text of the target language, together with a voice output for spoken languages or a video sequence if sign language is selected. The partner can respond by changing into his/her language mode, and choosing a response phrase. Thereby the iPhone/iPod is used by both parties.
Care staff and patient have their own, separate menu of phrases
| Care staff
|Examinations and procedures
xprompt is expanding: Currently over 20 languages (including 2 sign languages) are available for download from within the app, for a small surcharge. Further 30 languages are planned for release. Any two languages can be combined, resulting in equal-rights medical communication around the world.
The xprompt app comes with three languages pre-installed:
The following languages are available for download from within the app,
for a small fee:
|BSL British Sign Language
|DE German (included)
|DGS German Sign Language

Portuguese, Swedish and Vietnamese will be released soon. Further languages will follow shortly thereafter.
Please note: the video language packs (DGS and BSL) require iPhone OS version 3.1 or later
In this international project, around 130 people from 50 countries have collaborated and continue to support xprompt with their competence. All translators have translated phrases into their native language, have a medical education, and the quality of their translations have been checked. Notwithstanding, minor errors cannot be ruled out.
xprompt cannot, and does not intend to replace
professional interpreters. For complex dialogs, an interpreter is required, especially in situations where the patient's health, body or life is in danger.
