About our company:
Netpop Research is a full-service market research firm with expertise in online consumer behavior -- how people use the Internet (and traditional sources) to make shopping decisions. Therefore, our questionnaires ask about online consumer behavior with a vocabulary of terms like "comparison shopping website," "search engine," "online retailer," "banner ad," "gadget ad," "sponsored link," etc. Since these form the basis of our research questionnaires, the translator's proficiency in such terminology is key for the overall success of the research project.
