Welsh Translation and Validation of PROMs

As part of our Welsh language provision, the Welsh Value in Health Centre provide all nationally adopted PROMs in Welsh as well as English. As few PROMs tools are available in Welsh, Cedar are responsible for negotiating their translation with the licence holder. In most cases we are able to gain permission to do this work within Cedar, which is the most cost-effective method. To ensure the PROMs are translated to a high standard we work to an approved process which involves numerous rounds of translation, followed by testing with patients to make sure that the translation stays true to the original PROM.
