Revisiting the translator competence in the 21st century

Abstract The article, centred around the phenomenon of the Translator Competence as abstract theoretical concept, as well as terminological and pedagogical issue, starts with a terminological disambiguation of the key terms of competence, translation educator and education target. TC is also viewed historically in the scriptorium environment, and then analysed in Translation Studies contexts with the acknowledgement of a certain inadequacy of the existing TC models for teaching purposes, which, as postulated by Don Kiraly (2014), leads to a move towards pedagogical innovation and implementation of the Emergentist Model in Translation Pedagogy.
