Call for translations

20 September, 2010

The Foundation wants to to add new language versions of the instruments that measure the effects of war, disaster and trauma on children to its website.

To ensure the measures are available in the world’s most spoken languages, the Foundation asks volunteer to translate measures.

The screening tool Children’s Impact of Event Scale 8 (IES) is currently available in nine languages. The Foundation are looking for volunteers who can translate IES8 into the following languages:

French, Russian, Hindi, Urdu, Portuguese, Russian and Bengali.

We are also looking for volunteers who can amend the following IES13 versions into Burmese, Dari, Khmer, Tamil and Pashto.

If this sounds like something you can help us with, please send an e-mail to, stating which language version you can help us with, and please tell us something about your background.

If you wish to translate the IES or the DSRS into other languages, please contact us.
