Subsite in Portuguese

As well as (so far I think mainly machine) translations of some pages of the main site into Portuguese, we now also have the subsite in Portuguese/subsite em português edited by Murilo Zibetti of Porto Alegre in Brazil. For more information about subsites, see here.


Translation of the CORE-OM and YP-CORE into Portuguese for use in Portugal and, potentially, any other Portuguese speaking country have been completed co-led with Dr. Celia Sales and Dr. Paula Alves and other colleagues.  A paper on the CORE-OM translation process and initial and very reassuring psychometric parameters has been published (Sales, Moleiro, Evans & Alves (2012). Versão Portuguesa do CORE-OM: Tradução, adaptação e estudo preliminar das suas propriedades psicométricas [The Portuguese version of CORE-OM: Translation, adaptation and preliminary data on its psychometric properties]. Interface, 39(2), 54–59) and a more extensive psychometric exploration, with excellent findings and based on larger samples is very slowly nearing submission.  Papers based on the use of the translation are emerging and the translation is increasingly widely used. Papers include:
