This short report describes the Vietnamese language version of the South Oaks Gambling Screen (SOGS) that was modified for the use in Australia. Lesieur and Blume's (1993) South Oaks Gambling Screen (SOGS) Revised was modified for the Australian context and then translated into the Vietnamese language. The integrity of Vietnamese translation was checked by blind back translation procedure. Cultural relevance regarding a question item on borrowing money from friends and an addition of "choi hui" were discussed. Recommendations were made to include these items and others for SOGS for Vietnamese-speaking clients.
