Abstract: The Wellness Evaluation of Lifestyle (WEL), developed in English, was translated into Korean, field tested, then administered to Korean American adolescents. Means were similar for participants completing the scale in both languages. Challenges to the adaptation process, recommendations for further study of the Korean WEL, and implications for cross-cultural wellness research are discussed.
