TRANSLATIONS OF THE SCID FOR DSM-IV
The best method for SCID language translation is as follows. First have an
individual translate the SCID from English into the (TARGET) language. Then
have a different person back-translate the (TARGET) language version into
English. The two copies should then be compared to assure that the
statements in the original English version have the same meaning as the
statements in the (TARGET) language version.
Upon completion, kindly furnish the Biometrics Research department with the
validated copy along with your contact information so that this (TARGET)
version of the SCID may be made available to other researchers.
