Summary The thesis examines current approaches to the adaptation of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) instruments for cross-cultural research. The major conclusion is that nearly all existing HRQoL adaptation is based on simplistic processes that ignore relevant underlying disciplines including cognitive psychology, sociolinguistics, cultural anthropology, translation theory and survey research.
