The Problems the Students Faced in Technical Translation Course at the Hashemite University: An Overview

Mai Malkawi


This paper aims at investigating the problems facing the students of The Hashemite University who took the technical translation course. After studying and analyzing some samples of students’ translations throughout the course, it is discovered that there are three main problems encountered:

  • Problems related to word order and sentence structure.
  • Word choice
  • Grammatical problems

My hypothesis is that those problems are present in a more less frequency in the translations done by students coming from scientific and medical collages especially when those students are of the third year and above.
