“What types of errors do undergraduate students make depending on directionality?”


Abstract: This paper reports on a study concerning errors made by undergraduate students in L1 and L2 translation. The study was conducted as part of a one-term course in non-specialised (general) translation offered to a group of Polish students of Applied Linguistics, which focused on developing the three translation-specific sub-competences of translation competence described in the PACTE (2003) model. In the final assignment the students translated a text outside of class using all available resources and any information they had obtained from the client. The students’ translations were assessed based on their functionality/usability and other criteria, selected from those used by the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (2015), having to do with preserving the content of the source text and assuring the adequacy of the target text.
