BERNARDO, Elizian Braga Rodrigues et al. Methodological approach to translation and adaptation of scales in the area of sexual and reproductive health: an integrative review. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2013, vol.66, n.4, pp.592-598. ISSN 0034-7167.

The study aimed to analyze the methodological course for translation and adaptation of scales in dissertations and theses of Brazilian nursing in the field of Sexual and Reproductive Health. It is an integrative review of Brazilian dissertations and theses available in the electronic catalog of the Brazilian Nursing Association, in the period from 2000 to 2009, being identified three theses which composed the elements of the study. The three analyzed theses had Beaton et al. as a methodological reference; however, they differ in the followed path as suggested by those authors. It was noticed a prevalence of non-uniformity of the process of translation and transcultural adaptation, as well as no detailed information regarding the methodological course. The study identified the main focus of production of Brazilian nursing on the type of research methodology in the area of sexual and reproductive health, as well as compliance with the steps required to do so.
