WIRB to Arrange Translation
When a translation is requested on the WIRB Research Review Submission Form, the request will be sent to a certified translator/translation service when the English form is finalized and transmitted to the site. This is to ensure that all changes have been incorporated and that the form is the final version.
Once a research study is in process and it is found that a non-English-speaking subject qualifies for the study, a written request may be submitted to the WIRB Translations Dept. identifying the Sponsor, Protocol Nr., Investigator and the language requested. A quote for the service may be requested before the work is begun.
For most languages, turnaround time is approximately 5-7 working days from the time the request is sent to the translator. When the completed translation is received by WIRB, it will be verified and finalized, and sent to the site along with a signed translator certification statement.
The Board bills the translator fee plus the WIRB administrative fee of $285 for processing the request. Once the consent form is translated, it can be “personalized” for additional sites for the administrative fee and possibly the minimum one-hour translator fee ($75) if there is additional site-specific information that requires translation.
