There are no generic WPAI:SHP translations available. Researchers who need translations of the WPAI:SHP for specific disease/conditions are urged to use the templates created for other diseases posted here. The translations below were created by RWS Life Sciences (unless otherwise indicated) a professional translation service, using independent translations, harmonization, back-translation, expert review, and review by local language users. Some translations have also been evaluated through cognitive debriefing of test subjects. (See list of those translations). For questions about specific translations on this page, please contact Shawn McKown at RWS Life Sciences.
We do not recommend adapting translations from one disease to another without benefit of the formal translation process conducted by professional translators to insure that the disease is correctly translated, its insertion is grammatically correct, and that no other changes are introduced inadvertently
While every effort has been made to create the best translations possible, minor errors may be identified over time. If we discover any, we will adjust the translation accordingly. Revised translations are identified by the version number, e.g., v1.2 means a revised translation of the original WPAI; v2.1 means a revised translation of WPAI version 2. Version 2 contains an added instruction for questions 5 and 6. Users are encouraged to check for the latest available translations before starting a study. We are grateful to the pharmaceutical companies that have sponsored these translations and made them available to all users.
There is no charge for the use of the translations and no permission needed to use them. Please contact the translation company that created the translation if a translation certificate is needed.
