Our colleagues from all around the world are helping us to translate the PROMISE scale, a patient-reported outcome scale in acute pancreatitis, to the languages of the participating centers. We have a definitive or provisional version of the PROMISE scale in Spanish, English, Italian, Ukranian, Turkish, Russian, Romanian, Greek, Bulgarian and Hungarian. Urdu and Korean are on the way! We use the technique of “back translation” to ensure that the new versions are accurate.

The PROMISE study is a challenging project involving 84 centers, 31 countries and 21 languages. We are finishing our center-recruiting phase. if you want to join us, complete this survey.
