The Schwartz Outcome Scale-10 (SOS-10) is an effective measure of change in inpatient and outpatient populations, as well as student counseling centers, chemically dependent populations, and research projects. The utility of the SOS-10 in Canada is limited because there is currently no French version of this instrument. This study reports on a three-phase process (initial translation from English to French, evaluation of the online English SOS-10, and establishing equivalency between English online and French online versions) of development and validation of a French version of the SOS-10.
