Requesting Evidence from a non-English Setting - Including IEMBP Forms Available in Other Languages

Language used to fill in the Form

It will be less expensive for you if the person filling out your form is fluent enough to fill it out in English. However, if this is not possible, you should ask the person filling in the form to respond in their own language.

All documents received in a language other than English will need to be translated for the assessment process and applicants will need to cover the costs of translation. The IEMBP staff will contact you to organize this. See the IEMBP Application Policies (available on the Support page) for more information and translation policies and procedures.

Forms available in languages other than English

If the person from whom you need evidence cannot read English well, but can read Chinese, Farsi, French, German or Spanish well, you may use the forms in the table below instead of the English forms. (Note: Forms A and B are not applicable to Germany, and therefore have not been translated to German.)

The respondent should fill in the form in her/his own (dominant) language. It does not matter if the responses are not in the same language as the form. (You will be required to pay the cost of translation for any information that is provided in a language other than English.)

You must indicate to the person filling out the form that you authorize them to provide information about you, and that you will not get to see what they write. Therefore, you may print the form, sign the authorization within the form, and mail or fax it to the person who will fill it out. Or, if you wish, you may translate the wording from the English automatic email associated with this form, accessed via Step 10, and send the form in the language you need as an email attachment. To do this, you will need to save the form to your computer.

Translation of Forms by Applicants

If you need to give a form to someone who cannot read English, Chinese, Farsi, French, German or Spanish, you may translate the form into the required language, but you will need to provide your translation and pay for the cost of the verification of your translation of the form. As above, you must be sure to convey that you authorize them to provide the information, and that you will not see what they write. You will be required to pay the cost of translation for any information that is provided in a language other than English.
