Answer:

You would need to find “statements indicating translators’ and other actors’ notions of approval”. You may find such statements in: translator’s prefaces and notes in the translation; articles or books written by translators or others; and reviews of the translations. You could also generate statements by undertaking questionnaire surveys and interviews of the translators of your corpus and of other parties such as publishers, editors, and readers. (However, for historical translations, the actors may not be alive)
