Conducting international research is a common thing for academics and researchers in this globalization era. International topics and research fields require a wide range of respondents and data to get objective and generalized conclusions. To obtain objective data without personal and cultural interference, the research should be conducted across nations and linguistic borders. Thus, the research instruments such as surveys and questionnaires to get the data should be accurate and culturally sensitive or appropriate. Therefore, back-to-back translation services should be used to build the research instruments.

What is back-to-back translation?

The back-to-back translation is a translation of documents that involves two processes. First, a professional translator with expertise in both the source and target languages translates the original document into the target language. Then, a second translator who is native to the target language translates the translated version back into the source language. These processes can reveal any errors or unclear passages in the initial translation before the instruments are used. It also helps to identify cultural terms misinterpretations in the translated material because the translators have different cultural backgrounds. Therefore, the validity and quality of the instruments in terms of structure validity are guaranteed.
