By Jorge Bacigalupo, Global Business Development Program Manager, NCCN

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) recently published Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, French, Italian, and Latin American Spanish language translations for the following NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®):

  • B-Cell Lymphomas, Version 5.2017
  • T-Cell Lymphomas, Version 2.2017

In addition, NCCN published the updated Chinese translation of the following NCCN Guidelines®:

  • Prostate Cancer, Version 2.2017

The NCCN Guidelines continue to be recognized as the global standard for clinical practice and policy. The value of NCCN’s evidence-based, expert-derived recommendations to practitioners outside the United States is evident as demonstrated, in part, by the escalating volume and breadth of foreign requests for NCCN Content. Today, more than 450,000 registered users of the NCCN Guidelines on, or nearly 47% of all registered users, report that they reside outside the United States. Moreover, there is substantial and increasing global interest in having NCCN Guidelines translated into a variety of languages. Last year, requests for translations of NCCN Content continued to grow, with 35 countries seeking NCCN Guidelines resources, specifically in their native languages. 

Currently, there are more than 140 translations of NCCN Guidelines available on and the Virtual Library of NCCN Guidelines Mobile App. Translations of NCCN Guidelines are available in Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Latin American Spanish, Polish, South Korean, and Turkish. Adaptations of NCCN Guidelines are available for use in Asia, Latin America, the Middle East North Africa, Spain, and Russia.
