This year’s World PT Day materials have been translated into 38 languages – from Arabic to Vietnamese.
The translations have been kindly provided by volunteers from 25 World Physiotherapy member organisations and 12 individual or groups of physiotherapists. All the translations have been published on the World Physiotherapy website and shared on social media.
Emma Stokes, World Physiotherapy president, said: “It’s great to see so many of our member organisations and individual physiotherapists getting involved in World PT Day and helping raise the profile of the physiotherapy profession.
“There is no better way to show how inclusive our profession is than being able to share the World PT Day materials in a range of languages and to reach people around the world.”
The World PT Day materials are available in the following languages:
- Chinese - Simplified
- Chinese - Traditional

World PT Day toolkit
The theme for World PT Day 2022 is osteoarthritis and includes information sheets and posters aimed at the general public promoting the role of physiotherapists in the prevention of osteoarthritis and in the management of people affected by osteoarthritis. There is also a resource list for facts, research findings, statistics, and articles to help you demonstrate the contribution of physiotherapists. In 2023 the focus will be on other rheumatological conditions.
Please note: the materials may not be amended without the permission of World Physiotherapy.
World Physiotherapy would like to express its thanks to the volunteer translators who have helped produce the World PT Day materials in 38 languages.
