This is going to be the start page for a bunch of the content around translations.

(1) create a clear set of instructions on how to translate a new measure by researching the procedures in place at other professional translation institutions and integrating them so that they are compatible with the volunteer-based framework of HGAPS.

(2) Document and improve standards for questionnaire validation, which will inform steps needed to validate existing translations

(3) Create a process to insert these translations into the existing dissemination pipeline that already exists for in HGAPS, which includes integration into the assessment center, by putting the questionnaire on Qualtrics and Wikipedia, Wikiversity, and Wikidata.\

(4) Develop process for gathering and responding to suggestions, inputs, and collecting testimonials

(Bonus) Pilot fundraising to support translation and dissemination projects

We plan to implement this with the General Behavior Inventory (GBI) as a pilot questionnaire for these pipelines.
