VIA-120 Languages

The original VIA-IS (240-question version) has been translated into the following languages. The languages marked with an asterisk are still considered "in development" because not enough survey takers have completed it to determine if the translation is reliable. Languages without an asterisk have been reviewed and are considered reliable. Reliable translations are available to the public as the 120-question VIA Survey. Researchers should use caution when using a survey translation that has not been reviewed for reliability.
