Language differences between health providers and consumers create a central barrier to the delivery of health education. This article presents the results of an analysis of more than 75 bi/multilingual health sites available on the Internet. The review criteria and a summary of the key features of the best sites are presented. Limitations common to most sites are identified. Recommendations and caveats in the use of bilingual health information sites are introduced.
