Sure, I can do it. And it would be great if you post here your rehab list with great instructions and some source which I didn't mention on my list as I didn't hear about that before I checked your info. Will try to post my list on FB tonight. Now I am leaving to spend my time more productively than to agonize in the office - my daughter came to visit us so now I have a great company to roam around :)

Somewhere on here I have posted my top apps and activities for training. I can not post the PDF file because I can't figure out how to do that and that is the document that has the images and directions so the best I can do is direct people to where to find it in our FB group or email it to people if they private message me and give me their email account info.

Hi Valentin,

Try to google using key words like rehabilitación ci. Perhaps, you can find what you need.

I know that AdvancedBionics has some apps in Spanish:

Also, there are some TedTalks clips available in Spanish:

Best luck,

Valentin, were you able to get translation figured out? If so, how did you do it? Many in our community do not have English as their native language

Adam, no yet. I'm waiting answer from MED EL about this question. I'm working with some resources comment in this thread.But I believe the spanish it is a "must to stay". Arround 400 millions of people have it like native language.

At this moment I'm looking for Aural Rehab for Android or Windows.

MED EL confirmed me that they have resources in english, and are working in other languages, inclusive spanish. In his page I can see some of them, and others will be avaliable when are adapted. I understand here that it is not valid only translation. You need have the acent of language. It is not the same english translated to spanish, or spanish to english. It is necesary native acent of each language.

Excellent list - some I have used, others forgotten, others new to me.

All that I visited are excellent 

So the others should be too!

Thanks @Cara Mia for providing that information - quite valuable!
