The authors propose a consideration of the conditions for observation when designing exploratory experiments in the field of translation studies. They discuss the adaptation of the 'classic' criteria which are valid in all experimental and social sciences, and introduce new criteria resulting from the specific problems posed by research into the didactics of translation. In the second part, the theoretical requirements set out in the introduction are modified in the light of a practical experiment carried out by one of the authors and questions are raised concerning the feasability of a strict application of those theoretical requirements.
