Objective: The study aim was to cross-culturally adapt the Self-reported Foot and Ankle Score (SEFAS) into Spanish and French-language versions, to validate them and to evaluate their psychometric properties. Methods: The cross-cultural translation from the original SEFAS into French and Spanish was performed in accordance with the guidelines of the ISPOR. The participants were recruited from some private healthcare institutions in France and Sapin, from June to August 2019. The following inclusion criteria were applied: aged at least 18 years, with foot and/or ankle deformity, had a history of subtalar and/or ankle and/or talonavicular or hindfoot pain, did not make daily use of walking aids, and were able to achieve the normal range of motions in the ankle, subtalar and midtarsal joints. All patients gave signed informed consent and completed the SF-36 and SEFAS questionnaires in the Spanish or French version. Results: The analysis was based on 319 participants. Internal consistency was excellent (Cronbach’s alpha values of 0.94 for the Spanish version and 0.88 for the French version). No floor/ceiling effect was observed in any item, in either version. Conclusion: The Spanish and French versions of SEFAS are valid, reliable instruments for evaluating foot and ankle pain and function.IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATION Self-report questionnaires specific to patients with rheumatoid arthritis are needed to assess the degree of pain, disability, and disability caused by foot problems. The Spanish and French versions of SEFAS show the necessary psychometric characteristics. Each version provides a valid, reliable tool ensuring the correct evaluation of pain, function and limitation of function in the foot and/or ankle in the target population.
