A survey is made of at least a sample (or full population in the case of a census), a method of data collection (e.g., a questionnaire) and individual questions or items that become data that can be analyzed statistically. A survey may focus on different types of topics such as preferences, opinions, behavior, or factual information, depending on its purpose. Translating a survey so that its nuances are not lost in the translation is why Language Marketplace excels in this area.
Our mother-tongue Translators are briefed on socio-demographic characteristics of the target population, mode of administration of the survey instrument, and where the survey will be administered. We also provide our translators with specific instructions about the reading level he/she should be aiming for in the translation.
The first step Language Marketplace performs is to review the original language survey before translation to identify items, terms or concepts that are difficult to translate and then create a terminology database.
If your survey has ‘clever’ features like mail-merge or displaying previous answers you may want to make the text more generic to save your sanity! (Just because we can append a word in English to the end of the sentence doesn't mean the same rule applies in other languages.)
