Face Validation and Translatability Assessment of COAs

A number of steps can be carried out by a language service provider (LSP) to improve the survey methodology and translatability of a questionnaire. At each stage of the Face Validation and Translatability Assessment process, all proposed changes to the original source text must be approved by the developer. The following methodology was used to assess and ultimately improve the Work and Productivity Loss Questionnaire (WPLQ), a questionnaire used to measure the impact of a health condition on one’s employment, working hours, and ability to function at work. The questionnaire is versatile by design so it can be adapted for use in patients with a variety of diseases or illnesses.
