Background: Depression is one of the most researched emotional responses after stroke and shows that the emotional impact of aphasia can have a marked negative impact on recovery, response to rehabilitation, and psychosocial adjustment. There is an evident dearth of validated instruments to assess depression in people with aphasia including Hindi, the national language of the country. Aims: The aim of this study was to translate and adapt the original English version of widely used hospital version of Stroke Aphasia Depression Questionnaire (SADQ-10) to Hindi. Subjects and Methods: English version of SADQ-10 was translated and adapted for the use in Hindi-speaking population in concordance to the WHO guidelines. Statistical Analysis Used: The intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) analysis of the data was performed using SPSS, version 16, to compute the test–retest reliability. Results: The Hindi version of SADQ-10 yielded an overall high test–retest reliability (ICC = 0.91) as well as internal consistency (α = 0.98), which in turn were comparable to the original instrument in English. Conclusions: SADQ10-Hindi may assist the identification of depressed mood in patients with speech and language impairment in an Indian population as well. It is an easy to administer and quick test which can be used by health-care professionals in a hospital- or community-based settings.
