Acknowledging Insight Assessment translation partners
We at Insight Assessment extend our thanks to the many scholars, professors, colleagues, and graduate students who have, over the years, collaborated with us to supply authorized translations.
This work is rigorous and often their work has required travel to the United States to meet face to face with our authors as well as extensive pilot testing of the preliminary translations. We greatly appreciate their commitment to excellence and precision of thinking.
