This page contains information about translations of the adult CAN.
CAN Official translator
To reduce duplication, we authorise individual translations of the adult CAN, and list details of all official translators in the table below. Please contact the official translator for information about their translation. We aim to keep contact details updated, but if you are unable to contact the translator through their contact details or internet searching for new contact details, please contact us for advice on how to proceed.
If the official translator does not yet have a finished translation, or they have not translated the version of the adult CAN that you need, then please decide between you and the official translator how to proceed. This might involve you informally supporting the official translator in their work, or taking over from them, or starting a new translation. If you agree that you should be listed as the new official translator then please contact us with new contact details to include in the translation list.
Translating the CAN
You have permission to translate the 2nd edition of the measure providing all these conditions are met:
a) The translation is clearly labelled both in English and in the translated language, e.g. CANSAS-P 2nd edition (German).
b) To maximise conceptual equivalence and ensure cultural compatibility with the adult CAN, minor modifications can be made to the domain trigger questions and the anchor points which give examples for each rating. New culture-specific domains can be added to the end of the measure. Components which may not be changed are the 22 domain names, the definitions of met need, unmet need and no need, and the structure and scoring options for each section. We encourage but do not require the development of high-quality translations, for example by following a formal methodology for translation such as described here.
c) Your translation includes the following statement both in English and in the translated language:
The adult CAN 2nd edition was published by Mike Slade and Graham Thornicroft. Further information from researchintorecovery.com/can. This translation was published in year by name and contact details (e.g. email address) of translator.
d) Your translation includes the following statement in English (and, where meaningful, in the translated language):
Distributed using Creative Commons License: CC BY-NC-ND 4.0.
This means that your translation is distributed using an Attribution-NonCommercial-No Derivative Works 4.0 International Public Licence (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) so it can be used without permission for clinical, educational or research purposes, providing no change is made to the content and no charge is made. Please contact us if you receive a request for permission to change or charge for your translation, or to publish it as a book.
e) You send us a PDF copy of your translation which we will make available as a download in our translations list.
If you plan to make a translation please send us information about the specific CAN measure(s) you will be translating and your name and email details to list in the translator table.
