There are many large geographical regions speaking the same language for different historical and political reasons. In European Union it is English with the main educational programs using this language. The same situation is observed in transplantation, where the modern destinations in transplantation law, donation aspects, donor family approach, etc. being presented in English.

In the former USSR territory Russian was used as international language and this situation remains in many countries where Russian is more popular than English. At the same time they have big interest in the development of local transplantation programs that needs participation in education programs in transplantation. Latvian transplantation center in cooperation with Riga Stradins University and local authorities have started educational program in transplantation for Russian speaking countries, which was started as the separate lectures and presentations performed locally and presently processed to specialized educational 7- day program including both theoretical and practical issues in transplantation. In the result of this educational program presently there are already some changes in Kazakhstan national transplant legislation and deceased donation was started.
