This paper aims at investigating the influence of neutral gender words on translating job titles from English language into Arabic Language. This qualitative research includes 20 postgraduate students doing their M.A in Applied Linguistics at the Department of English Language and Literature at Mu'tah University for the academic year 2015/2016. The sample of the study was selected randomly. The researcher used two research instruments; checklist and interview. The findings of this research showed that neutral gender words influence the process of translation in which translators face difficulties when translating them. That is, they encounter difficult problem concluding their meanings unless used in a context, text or followed by a pronoun. This research recommends that translators should consider such words' category and be aware of their usage. Also, this study recommends that further future research be conducted in this area to overcome problems in English as a foreign translation, particularly in a Jordanian context.
