- The translator on hand when a subject is consented should fill in the needed blanks where information is to be provided and have the appropriate parties sign and date the form where indicated.
- If a language or translation error on a foreign language short form is discovered, notify the IRBMED immediately so we can correct the problem.
The short form documents below were created in June 2018; all translations are certified by Babel Linguistics. For certification documentation, contact the IRBMED office.
