We present a calibration of the massive star formation rate vs. [CII] luminosity relation based on a sample of nearby, late-type galaxies observed with ISO-LWS and imaged in the H{alpha}+[NII] line. The relation holds for far-IR luminosities 10^8^ <= L_FIR_ <= 10^10.5^ L_sun_. The derived star formation rates have an uncertainty of about a factor of 10. Part of this uncertainty is due to the different mix of contributions to the [CII] emission from the different components of the interstellar medium in individual galaxies, as discussed in an appendix. Key words: galaxies: general - galaxies: spiral - ISM: general - star: formation - radio lines: galaxies
