At the department of foreign language teaching, a variety of courses are offered in order for students to acquire translation competence. The courses are often carried out by translating a text from one language into the other. Learning by experience is an effective approach. However, it is inevitable that there are some aspects that we need to reconsider with this methodology. Translation is a creative and functional activity. Any approach neglecting this aspect of translation can be regarded as source-oriented and prescriptive. The concept of translation competence can be used in such a way that is different from the traditional way of translation practice at the department of foreign language teaching. The model put forward by the PACTE Research Group, which investigates the translation competence and its acquisition in Spain, serves this purpose. The model consists of 5 sub-competencies that are inter-related and hierarchic. In the model, linguistic competence is a component of translation competence. It is the plan of the study to start by introducing the concept of competence. After that, a difference will be drawn up between linguistic competence and translation competence.The theoretical framework is followed by a sample practice. As a result, there will be a change from source-orientedness to target-orientedness and from being static to dynamic and functional in translation. This approach will contribute to the build-up of self-efficacy for the learners.
