Translatability Assessment of Draft Questionnaire Items

Dept, S. (2013).

Contribution to the session ‘Advancing the field of questionnaire translation – identifying problems, discussing methods, pushing the research agenda. A tribute to Janet Harkness’ at the 5th Conference of the European Survey Research Association (ESRA), Ljubljana, 2013.

In multilingual surveys, there is a strong trend towards performing more upstream work to reduce the need for downstream corrective action. Along these lines, a new step has been designed and implemented recently, and its output is most promising: newly developed questionnaire items undergo a Translatability Assessment before they are finalised and sent to countries for translation/adaptation.
