 abstract = {In recent years there have been important improvements in many areas of cross-national survey
methodology. Yet one of the most central areas, questionnaire design, has received less attention. This
article introduces, illustrates and evaluates a questionnaire design and documentation template that
aims to better structure and document cross-national questionnaire design, largely unchartered territory
to date. The article will demonstrate how the template conceptually structures the process of
design, facilitates communication between the multiple actors involved and brings cross-national pretesting
findings together into a coherent framework. The ways in which the template makes the measurement
aims clear and the design process transparent, are also explored.},
