A test adaptation project is best carried out by a team of specialists (see, for example, Grisay, 2003). Translators should participate in such a project team and be involved in the decision making process, and their opinions and views should be actively sought and acknowledged. According to Brislin (1986), this approach can greatly improve the quality of an adaptation. The teamwork approach can help to (1) enable the use of the back-translation methods (see step 5, below); (2) allow translators to compare and discuss their work and thus improve on the relevance and quality of translations; and (3) can help to ensure that specialist knowledge in all required fields is accessible.

For test administration, a thorough knowledge of the lin­ guistic and cultural aspects of the target group is valuable. For exam­ ple, 3 or 4 points on a rating scale in Turkey seems to be optimal (according to some psychologists in that country who reviewed a draft of the ITC Guidelines for Test Adaptation). With more points, semantics become problematic. 3. 3 Test administrators should be sensitive to a number of factors related to the stimulus materials, administration procedures, and response modes that can moderate the validity of the inferences drawn from the scores.
