Information about the translation process

  • Professional translators experienced in the language and field of expertise required were used in the translation of the SWYC age-specific forms for each language, for both the original translation and the back-translation. LanguageLine Solutions has stated that they believe the translation to be true and accurate to the best of their knowledge. During back-translation, the documents were translated back to English by an entirely new linguistic team which had no exposure to the original English master.
