To facilitate use of the Forgiveness Likelihood Scale in cross-cultural studies, the psychometric characteristics of the translated scale were examined among 192 adolescents in Portugal (86 men and 106 women). The Forgiveness Likelihood Scale is a 10-item Likert-type scale designed to measure tendency to forgive across situations. Cronbach alpha was .89. Confirmatory factor analysis showed that the questionnaire was unidimensional among Portuguese high school students.
