Translating the IDDSI Framework
IDDSI has been receiving a number of inquiries wondering about translating the IDDSI documents into a variety of languages.  We have developed a process and accompanying documents to assist with this.

The Translation Process:
  • Our translation process involves posting the draft translation for a period of 3 months to allow review and feedback on the translation from peers.  We recognize there may be slight difference within a language and we would like the translated version to be broadly understood and accepted.
  • An English pdf version of the Framework along with a fillable PDF template for the translated version, will be provided to you.
  • We will provide an IDDSI email address to receive/respond to questions and feedback for the 3 month period. The email will be   {i.e}
  • At the end of the 3-month period, the draft version with any changes should be re-submit will then be posted as final on the website.
  • In appreciation of your work and with your permission, we will post an acknowledgement to you on our website.
