Developing a Process-Oriented Translation Test for Assessing English-Arabic Basic Translation Skills
Abdellah, Antar Solhy
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Centre for Developing English Language Teaching (CDELT) Conference (32nd, Cairo, Egypt, Apr 2007)
The study reviews translation validated tests and proposes a process-oriented translation test for assessing basic translation skills for freshmen English majors at the faculty of Education. The proposed test is developed based on the process approach to translating and translation teaching, and is confined to translation from English to Arabic. Translation basic skills (reading comprehension--researching--analytical thinking--and production) are the four dimensions of the test. Appended are: (1) The Translation Test: A Test in Basic Translation Skills for First Year English Majors; and (2) Answer Key and Scoring Criteria. (Contains 11 tables, 4 figures, 4 footnotes, and 1 diagram.)
