Ask the same questions and translate (ASQT)
An approach to question design wherein 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. Decentering is a second way to ‘ask the same questions’ (ASQ), but this procedure is differently organized.
