Translations into Japanese
Regrettably the authors of Uji, M., Sakamoto, A., Adachi, K., & Kitamura, T. (2012). Psychometric properties of the Japanese version of the Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation–Outcome Measure. Comprehensive Psychiatry, 53(5), 600–608. http://doi.org/10.1016/j.comppsych.2011.09.006 did not contact CST and appear to have used a very poor and dated translation protocol to create the translation that is, as unapproved, a copyright violation and probably not a good translation of the CORE-OM at all.
Work was underway on an approved translation, following our translation protocol and that will continue though does really need a Japanese first language speaking lead who works in the mental health field, ideally in Japan.
Contact me (CE) if you could contribute forward translations of the CORE-OM (or YP-CORE) and if you might be willing to take over the lead of an official, approved, translation.
