Japanese translation of the DASS
This translation was carried out by John Naaykens.
The Japanese translation of the DASS was conducted using intra-rater agreement among the following educational personnel: Niigata University Full Professor of English (native Japanese speaker), Assistant Professor of English at the Nagaoka National College of Technology (American), Niigata University Lecturer in English (native Japanese speaker), and Niigata High School English Teacher (native Japanese speaker). All raters were fully fluent in both English and Japanese.
Scoring the questionnaire: The items are in the same order as the English DASS. The English DASS scoring template will not match the layout of the Japanese questionnaire, but it will indicate which items contribute to each scale.
