Objective: The purpose of this study was to translate the Index of Nausea, Vomiting, and Retching (INVR) and the Prenatal Self-Evaluation Questionnaire (PSEQ) scales into Chinese and conduct an initial psychometric testing of the INVR and the PSEQ in Taiwanese pregnant women. Though the English versions of these two scales have already had good evidence for their reliability and validity, it is very important to re-establish proper psychometric characteristics in the Chinese version. Design: A translation and multiphase instrumentation study describing internal consistency, test-retest reliability, and content validity in the translated version was conducted. A convenience sample was recruited from prenatal clinics in Taiwan. Methods: Three measurement instruments were used in this study: the Demographic Inventory (DI), the INVR, and the PSEQ. Data were analyzed using SPSS, version 9.0 for Windows. Findings: Thirty pregnant women participated in the study. The results showed that both internal consistency and stability coefficients of the INVR and the PSEQ instruments were satisfactory. The indices of content validity (CVI) for the Chinese versions of these two instruments were both 1.0, indicating that they are acceptable for use among Taiwanese pregnant women. Conclusions: This was the initial instrumentation study for the INVR and the PSEQ used in Taiwanese pregnant women. In the future, the researcher should continue to build more evidence for the reliability using larger sample sizes, as well as examine the construct validity of the Chinese version to obtain a more comprehensive and accurate cultural and language adaptations of the INVR and the PSEQ.
