MURAL Multilingual Research Capacity Building Lecture Series - Translating Research Instruments: Is the Forward-Back Approach Enough?

Including non-English speaking participants in research requires us to translate our instruments. How we translate these tools can influence our results.

Join the Multilingual Research Advancement for Health (MURAL) program and Michaela DuBay, PhD, CCC-SLP, for the second edition of the Fall 2020 MURAL Multilingual Research Capacity Building Lecture Series. We will discuss a cultural adaptation approach to translation using a parent-report autism screening tool as a test case. We’ll describe how we translated and adapted this tool for a US-Based Spanish-speaking population, including fostering community collaborations to ensure an appropriate translation was developed. We’ll also highlight specific areas found to be particularly ripe for cultural adaptation and provide specific recommendations for researchers interested in translating their own tools.
