    • Abstract:
      The purpose of this study was to translate two validated screening tests, the Eating Disorder Inventory-2 (EDI-2) and Bulimia Test-Revised (BULIT-R), into Korean and to demonstrate the internal consistency and validity of the translated tests. Internal consistency of eight Korean EDI-2 subscales, examined by administering the Korean version of both tests to a Purdue sample (n is 45 males, 28 females) and a combined sample (28 females from Purdue and 95 female undergraduate students in Seoul, Korea), ranged from .70 to .93 and from .80 to .90 respectively, and were similar to those derived from the original English version (.83-.93). Likewise, Cronbach alphas for three provisional subscales (.66-.86 and .75-.85 respectively) were similar or higher than those derived from the original English version (. 70-. 80). The Korean BULIT-R also showed high internal consistency (.94 and .95 respectively). In general, the internal consistency (Cronbach alphas) and content validity (item-total scale correlations) of the translated tests met the criteria established for the original English tests. When bilingual subjects were given both the English and Korean tests one week apart, no differences were observed (p greater than .01) as a result of order (English 1st or Korean 1st). Thus, construct validity was further demonstrated by examining the correlations between the Korean test results and the English test results. Correlations for the EDI-2 ranged from .59 to .88 for females (n is 145) and from .58 to .78 for males (n is 57) and were significant (p is .0001). Correlations for the BULIT-R were .94 for females (n is 145) and .72 for males (n is 57) and were significant (p is .0001). The convergent validity of the Korean translation of the BULIT-R was examined by comparing it to the Bulimia subscale of the EDI-2 (r is .78, p is 0001). Thus, this study supported the effectiveness of translating diagnostic instruments with proven efficacy in western society into Korean despite cultural differences. Also, responses to open-ended questions provided anecdotal evidence of the existence of anorexia and bulimia nervosa in Korea in spite of an apparent lack of accurate information regarding these eating disorders.
