The Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) is now available in Japanese. The CHS management team would like to thank the members of the Quality and Accountability Network in Japan (JQAN) for translating the Standard. We would also like to thank the Japan NGO Centre for International Cooperation (JANIC) for acting as secretariat of the process and Shinnyo-en for sponsoring the translation and design. The CHS in Japanese will be an invaluable resource for humanitarian and development organisations working across Asia and worldwide.

The CHS is now available in 17 languages on our Standard page: Arabic, Bangla, Bahasa Indonesia, English, French, Haitian Creole, Khmer, Korean, Nepali, Portuguese, Spanish, Swahili, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian and Urdu. We also encourage interested individuals and organisations to translate the CHS into other languages. This helps disseminate the document more widely and supports the efforts of humanitarian and development actors to improvement the quality and effectiveness of their responses. Those wishing to do so should first email for more information and approval from the CHS communications team.
