Certificate of Translation Form

Version 2015.a
For research conducted in languages other than English, the Rutgers IRB must have all versions of the
research material [e.g. consents, recruitment, instruments, etc.] in both English and non-English to be
retained in the research file. A certificate of translation form is also required to verify the translations
are accurate. Those who translate the material are to provide a brief description of their qualifications,
skills or experience for serving in this role and sign the certificate of translation form.
Translation: It is acceptable for an investigator listed as research personnel to translate the
research material.
Timing of the Translation: the research investigator(s) may wish to delay the initial translation
until after the IRB has reviewed the English versions. Doing so may help researchers avoid
multiple translations.
Modifications: If the non-English documents are submitted to the IRB after initial approval,
please submit a research modification form along with the translated material and a copy of the
certificate of translation.
