Bontempo, Robert
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, v24 n2 p149-66 Jun 1993
Describes a method for assessing the quality of translations based on item response theory (IRT). Results from the IRT technique with French and Chinese versions of a scale measuring individualism-collectivism for samples of 250 U.S., 357 French, and 290 Chinese undergraduates show how several biased items are detected.
