Guidance for XML Files: Additional Language Level to Accommodate the Armenian Translation

Aug 27

Written by:

8/27/2018

To accommodate the new Armenian translation, please update your XML file documentation to add a 6th level to the “language” variable for language in which the survey was completed. The next version of the Protocols and Guidelines Manual—to be released in January 2019—will include updated appendices with this information; however, vendors anticipating implementing the survey in Armenian may want to make this change to their programs sooner. The XML validation tool will be updated to accommodate this change by September 1.

Survey Language
<language>
This administration data element should only occur once per patient.
Example:

Identify language in which survey completed

1 = English
2 = Spanish
3 = Chinese
4 = Russian
5 = Vietnamese
6 = Armenian
M = Missing
