Over the past 15 years or so the number of educational and psychological tests being translated and adapted for use in cross-national and cross-cultural settings has increased enormously. Cross-national studies such as TIMSS and OECD/PISA have required educational tests to be made available in over 50 languages. In clinical works, education, health and I/O psychology, many tests are available in multiple languages, as well as credentialing exams in medicine, the information technology industry, accounting, the securities industry, and many more. Proper interpretation of results requires that the translations and adaptations of these tests be correctly carried out. The International Test Commission (ITC) Guidelines for Test Adaptation, published in 2001, have been helpful to researchers and testing agencies wanting to improve their test adaptation practices. These guidelines were first presented formally at the 1999 ITC Conference on Test Adaptations held at Georgetown University, Washington, DC, and are currently in the process of being updated. Indeed, the period since the 1999 conference has witnessed enormous growth in both researcher interest and applied methodological procedures associated with test translation and adaptation. In light of this growing interest and advancing methodology, together with forthcoming updated guidelines for test adaptation, it would appear to be a most appropriate time for the ITC to convene another conference.
