The translator should be knowledgeable of the English-speaking culture but his/her mother tongue should be the primary language of the target culture.
The focus is on cross-cultural and conceptual, rather than on linguistic/literal equivalence.
A well-established method to achieve this goal is to use forward-translations and back-translations.
Advantages of these nadir sounded ozone profiles are the excellent spatial resolution at nadir and daily global coverage while the vertical resolution is limited to 6-7 km.
Comparisons with well-validated ozone profile recordings by the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) and the Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES), both aboard the NASA EOS-Aura platform, provide an excellent opportunity for validation because of the large amount of collocations with OMI due to the instruments significant geographical overlap.

The operational ozone profile retrieval algorithm was developed at the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute and the OMI mission data has been processed and made publicly available.
The aim of this process is to achieve different language versions of the English instrument that are conceptually equivalent in each of the target countries/cultures.That is, the instrument should be equally natural and acceptable and should practically perform in the same way.
