The CPRS [1] is a Comprehensive Psychopathological Rating Scale that has been developed by a working group with the Swedish Medical Research Council. It is currently used in the Scandinavian countries and is available in many languages.2The different national editions are not just a translation of the original Swedish scale, but they have been worked out by bilingual psychiatrists familiar not only with ratings but also with the idiomatic use of psychiatric terminology in the different countries. Such an approach to the translation of CPRS has largely contributed to making it easily communicable and highly reliable among psychiatrists with different linguistic backgrounds.
