JCI Announces Translation Policy and 5th Edition Publication Dates
Joint Commission International (JCI) announces a new policy and procedure for managing translations of its accreditation manuals and survey process guides, starting with its upcoming 5th edition Hospital Accreditation Standards.
JCI will publish e-books, or electronic versions, of its Joint Commission International Accreditation Standards for Hospitals, 5th Edition and Joint Commission International Accreditation Hospital Survey Process Guide, 5th Edition in Arabic, Chinese (simplified), Dutch, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazilian), Spanish, and Turkish.
The e-book English version of the standards will be available for purchase 1 September 2013, followed by a print version 1 October 2013. E-books of the translated standards will be published at the end of 2013. Publication dates for the Survey Process Guide and its translations will be announced soon.
JCI is reviewing plans to publish its upcoming Hospital Standards and Survey Process Guide in more languages; however, we will no longer publish translated manuals and survey process guides in conjunction with outside publishers and agencies to help improve the timeliness, quality, and consistent accuracy of the translations for the benefit of our accredited health care partners around the globe.
Contact Paul Reis, Specialist, Customer-Focused Tools and Resources, with any questions.
