Learn more about our translation methodology

All FACIT measures and items from the FACIT Measurement System follow an established FACIT Multilingual Translation Methodology,1,2 which was developed and validated to ensure that resulting translations of quantitative measures reflect conceptual equivalence with the source document rendered in language that is culturally acceptable and relevant to the target population, and is consistent with consensus opinion3. This rigorous methodology requires two forward translations into the target language by native speakers, a reconciled version of the two forward translations done by a third independent translator who is a native speaker of the target language, a back-translation of the reconciled version by an English speaker fluent in the target language, harmonization of the translation with other languages, and review/finalization by a native speaking linguist or HRQL research expert. After the translation phase is completed, items are linguistically validated by testing with patients to confirm the suitability of the translations for the target patient population.
