We encourage translation of the Clinical Frailty Scale© by interested clinicians, researchers, and/or organizations. Those who wish to translate the Clinical Frailty Scale should complete a permission request form and send it to email@example.com. Translators will be asked to provide an editable version of the translated text (e.g., MSWord document), which we will format. We also ask the translators to provide a citation (if applicable) to the publication in which the translated Clinical Frailty Scale was validated or first disseminated.
Upon request, we are happy to share translated versions of the Clinical Frailty Scale. Requests should be submitted using the permission request form. Please note that we do not independently validate or certify the translations.
Authorized translations of the Clinical Frailty Scale will include the following statement:
Clinical Frailty Scale ©2005-2020 Rockwood. Version 2.0. All rights reserved. For permission: www.geriatricmedicineresearch.ca. Translated with permission to [language] by [name of translator], [place of translation], [year].
The Clinical Frailty Scale has been translated into the following languages:
Version 1.2 (2009)
Version 2.0 (2020)
Some translations remain in progress and are not included in this list. Some translations are only available in text as formatting by the graphic design team is pending. If you are interested in using the Clinical Frailty Scale in a language that does not appear in this list, please contact us to ask if a translation is currently in progress.
With few exceptions, we are currently only authorizing and sharing translations of the updated Clinical Frailty Scale (v2.0).
It is our intention to provide additional information about the translators, the translation method, and citation information in the near future.
