The Construction of MTI Translation Evaluation Index System

Mei DONG, Haojiang CAI


Translation evaluation was essential to MTI training. In order to standardize, guide, diagnose, and regulate the process, the study firstly examined researches regarding translation competency both at home and abroad from 1970s till now; Then, based on the latest understanding of translation competency, with Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), a MTI Translation Evaluation Index System (MTI TEIS) was developed, aiming to digitally represent and assess the gradual progress of translator’s comprehensive translation abilities on an objective basis. The MTI TEIS was translator-oriented and  it emphasized individual difference. It may not only apply to MTI teachers who were in charge of evaluating and controlling the whole translation training process, but also to MTI candidates who expected to conduct self-evaluation regularly.
