Call for Translations: transform the Consent Form Wizard to your national language!

In numerous workshops, ELDAH has received rich feedback on the Consent Form Wizard (CFW). While we are proud that people generally find the tool extremely useful, many researchers have voiced the need for a version of the tool in their own language. This makes sense, as the consent forms are often handed out to research subjects who might be alienated or overburdened by signing a consent form in English.

Therefore, we have developed an easy-to-use interface for translating the tool. If you would like to provide your national community with a version of the CFW in your own language, all you need is a translator and a person with legal expertise in your own country to check the legal terminology in your translation.

Please send your expression of interest to translate the CFW to your national language to eldah@dariah.eu until 30 April 2021!
