PTSD Screening Questionnaire Translation Repository

This repository was created by a global collaboration of researchers, to increase access to translated PTSD screening questionnaires.


Aim of the Repository

To provide a central location of translated and evaluated PTSD screening questionnaires that are freely usable in clinical and research settings to:


  • Assist researchers and clinicians by providing access to translated PTSD screening questionnaires

  • Limit waste of resources by avoiding re-translations, in which an evaluated translation already exists

  • Highlight gaps in the literature (i.e., language groups for which no questionnaires are currently available)

  • Promote Inspire future research and promote collaborations with clinicians to increase the availability and quality of these questionnaires


There are three main ways you can support this repository:

1) Cite our review on Translated PTSD screening questionnaires (Hofman et al, 2022).

2) Contribute additional translations of PTSD screening questionnaires: contact Tobias Spiller 

3) Share this project with your collaborators and friends.
