|Title||El grupo de discusión como técnica de investigación en la formación de traductores: dos casos de su aplicabilidad|
|Authors||Huertas Barros, E. and Vigier Moreno, F.J.|
The qualitative research technique known as focus or discussion group is especially adequate for gathering information on the opinions, beliefs, perceptions, interests and attitudes of a group of individuals involved in a given object of study. In this article, we firstly focus on the main methodological issues which all studies based on focus groups must follow, depicting both characteristics and design phases. In the following, we describe two practical cases which have successfully applied focus groups for obtaining valuable data on two different objects of study dealing with translator training assessment. Thus we reveal the suitability and validity of this technique in this type of research projects.
