The translation evaluation step at which a translation is signed off and released for whatever follows next, such as pretesting or final fielding (the ‘A’ in the TRAPD method; see Translation). When all review and refinement procedures are completed, including any revisions after pretesting and copyediting, a final signing off/adjudication is required. Thus, in any translation effort, there will be one or more additional sign-off steps (“ready to go to external assessment,” “ready to go to client,” and “ready to go to fielding agency,” for example).
