Translating Medical Conditions & Allergies

Note: This step may require a Spanish speaker.  If you don't speak Spanish, you can use our Recommended List of Medical Conditions & Allergies in Spanish to get started.

Follow the instructions below to translate your Medical Conditions and Allergies lists so they appear on your forms in Spanish. Eaglesoft users, skip this step.


  1. From the YAPI Dashboard, click Tools Tools.png.  Select Administrative Tools, then Utilities, then Translation.  

  2. When prompted, enter your YAPI password.

  3. In the Translation window that pops up, select Spanish: Medical Terms from the options on the left-hand side. Then, click Load MC.

  4. In the Spanish column, double-click the empty space next to each condition and enter its Spanish translation.

  5. Dentrix users, skip this step.  Open Dental users, once you're finished translating your medical conditions, add your list of allergies and their Spanish translations:

    1. In Open Dental, click Lists in the toolbar and select Allergies to view your Allergies list.

    2. Back in YAPI, scroll to the bottom of Medical Conditions list.  Double-click the empty space in the English column to add the first allergy from your list.  Then, double-click the empty space next to the allergy to add its Spanish translation.  Repeat this for each allergy on your Allergies list from Open Dental.


  6. Click Save.  

  7. From the YAPI Dashboard, click Tools Tools.png.  Then select Administrative Tools, then Lists, then Medical Conditions.

  8. Click Save.  When asked if you want to update your online list, click Yes, then Yes again.  

  9. Once the window closes, your translation setup is complete!


Checking Over Your Spanish Forms

Before using your new forms with patients, we recommend having a Spanish-speaker in your office check them over.  Also, make sure members of your team are familiar with recognizing and selecting Spanish forms on an iPad (all our Spanish forms have the same names as their English counterparts but with "Spanish" added to the end of the name).

Once you've had a Spanish-speaker check over the forms and if you want them available online, schedule an appointment with a member of our Customer Support team.  The process takes about 15-20 minutes depending on how many Spanish forms you're using, so scheduling a dedicated time ensures that we'll have a representative available to assist you.  After your forms are available online, you can create online packages for your Spanish-speaking patients!
