The SCID I and/or II have been translated by external sources into the various languages listed below.  In many instances, SCID translations are based on an earlier edition of the SCID.  These language translations are being made available directly through the contact sources provided herein and are not available through Biometrics Research at Columbia University.  Inclusion of this contact information is provided as a courtesy.  Ideally, translations are produced in accord with the recommended method, which is to translate the SCID into the target language and back-translate the target version into English and compare the two versions to assure consistency in meaning.  However, since these SCID translations have been produced by independent publishers, researchers and clinicians, Biometrics Research is unable to certify the quality of SCID translation.  For further detailed information on a particular language translation, contact the source listing below.

Can be ordered directly from Masson SA web site: www.masson.es (search for "SCID" in title)

Spanish (Bi-lingual) version of the April 2005 SCID-NP and SCID-P in which the questions are in Spanish but the criteria sets and all instructions are in English.  A Spanish SCID for bilingual interviewers is available from the Biometrics Research Department.  The staff of the Behavioral Sciences Research Institute, at the University of Puerto Rico, in collaboration with the NYSPI Spanish translation Committee (Columbia), the Latino Mental Health Clinic (Harvard) and the Hispanic Research Center (Fordham) translated the questions in the 1996 version of the SCID.  The translation was updated to conform to the April 2005 version of the SCID by Gladyris Concepcion and Ana Alicia De La Cruz at the New York State Psychiatric Institute.  Please note that the G, H, and I modules (i.e., Somatoform Disorders, Eating Disorders, and Adjustment Disorder) have not been translated.  The English, January 2007 version of these modules is included in the bilingual SCID.  A paper copy of the bi-lingual SCID, along with the User's Guide, is available for $50.00.  A MS-Word file containing the Bilingual SCID is available for $250.00.  Click here to order.
