    ABSTRACT: Children's behavior is complex and may involve both genetic and environmental influences, [33-37] but it is important to note that assessments of children's behavior should take into account the cultural environment and social content. There is a clear need to establish the use of the ASEBA for Mainland China populations, particularly in order to assess externalizing and internalizing problems among preschool-age children. Our process of translating the Chinese CBCL/1.5-5 shed light on the nuances of establishing cross-cultural validity of an instrument. Other researchers who attempt to translate validated measures from one language into another language should be cognizant that variations within the target language may limit its generalizability. Furthermore, without following proper translation procedures, validation and use of the measure cannot be empirically established. The Chinese language is highly complex, and translation studies to evaluate Chinese translations can benefit from reviewing the challenges faced in our undertaking and considering the solutions provided herein. ┬ęChildren's Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, China and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2011.
