Some studies have been conducted to cross-culturally adapt the paper-based methods and instruments of ergonomics to minimize the accuracy discrepancy when utilized by non-English speakers, including Indonesians. However, no comprehensive reports are available on the paper-based methods and instruments in ergonomics adapted to the Indonesian versions. Hence, a systematic literature review was conducted to fill the gap. The review focused on understanding the adaptation approach, validity, and reliability of the methods and instruments. The literature review found six papers that reported adapted methods and instruments in ergonomics, including Rating Scale Mental Effort, System Usability Scale, User Experience Questionnaire, Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire, Chatbot Usability Questionnaire, and meCUE 2.0 Framework. The adaptation approach to determine the Indonesian versions of the methods and instruments followed partial or complete stages of cross-cultural adaptation guidelines. It was found that several adapted instruments were valid, with the levels being “excellent” to “good.” Furthermore, the reliability assessment indicated that several instruments have Cronbach alpha values ranging from 0.7 to 0.8, indicating that some of the adapted versions were reliable. Since limited methods and instruments were adapted to Indonesian versions, cross-cultural adaptation attempts have to be continued to ease the ergonomics implementations in Indonesia.
