Our experience in Linguistic Validation

Over the past 6 years, we have conducted

hundreds of patient-facing/phone assessments

testing the English of questionnaires in:

Crohn’s Disease


Ankylosing Spondylitis


Polymyalgia Rheumatica

Breast Cancer

Teenage cancer researchParkinson’s

Vision impairment (adult and paediatric)

General fatigue (adult and paediatric)


Eczema (adult and paediatric)

Childhood cancer researchClinical depression

Adult obesity


              Asthma, PAH – paediatric pulmonary conditions

In conjunction with our trained interview team of language experts and linguists and a number of specialist clinicians, we have assisted researchers in testing patient-facing questionnaires to establish their validity before they are used in real clinical settings.

To this end, we hope we have in some small way assisted in the development of more successful treatments for many conditions.

We can carry out your Linguistic Validation projects in

Ireland, Northern Ireland and the UK.
