Translation as a Language Testing Procedure: Does It Work?
Buck, Gary
Language Testing, v9 n2 p123-48 1992

Results suggest that the widespread rejection of translation as a language testing procedure by teachers and testers is probably not warranted on psychometric grounds, but that it should be used with extreme care.
