Within Translation Studies (TS), the prevalent research method is qualitative. However, investigating the translation process and outcome has seen an increase in the importance of quantitative methods. This poses a challenge as many TS scholars lack familiarity with these techniques. This article suggests a solution by outlining an effective approach to quantitative research and emphasizing key aspects of such research to address this issue. The critical component of quantitative studies is explicit research designs, which can be created through several steps to ensure thorough and accurate results. Consideration must be given to defining the sample and population under study, as well as signaling the scope of the variables involved, and stating the research hypotheses and questions. In order to ascertain the comprehensibility and significance of the resulting data, one should keep in mind which outcomes would either affirm or disprove hypotheses, as well as what types of results are significant. While quantitative research is often the focus, it is worthwhile to integrate qualitative analyses and regard the resulting product.
