If there is improper translation and the customer of another language interprets it in a different way than it was intended, then the answer provided by him will also not be a right and accurate one. This will not only lead to misleading answers but will also lead to a wrong report which will serve no purpose. The survey will thus be not accurate, nor will the conclusion be. So, the improper and inaccurate translations must be avoided to prevent the project from getting ruined.

This can be achieved by having a professional translator with adequate experience in market analysis, expertise in both the source and target language, sufficient knowledge about the cultures of the targeted audience and also experience in survey translation so that the target users understand the questions with the same ease as the source population does.
