Term Definition
Ask the same questions (ASQ)

An approach to question design whereby researchers collect data across populations/countries by asking a shared set of questions. The most common way to do this is by developing a source questionnaire in one language and then producing whatever other language versions are needed on the basis of translation or translation and adaptation. Hence the description used in the chapter of "ASQ and translate (ASQT)". Decentering is a second way to “ask the same questions” but this procedure is differently organized.
