The aim of this article is to discover the impact of the translation technique toward translation quality. In this article, a research plan is presented in discovering the effect of translation techniques toward the accuracy, acceptability, and readability. Firstly, existing definitions and classifications of translation techniques are reviewed and terminological, conceptual and classification confusions are discussed. Then, translation techniques are redefined, distinguishing them from translation method and translation strategies. Finally, we present a classification of translation techniques that will be tested in this study of the translation of cultural elements in Indonesian translations of “The Minangkabau Response to Dutch Colonial Rule in the Nineteenth Century”.

Keywords: translation technique, translation method, translation equivalence, translation quality

Presented in “International Conference “Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) and its Contributions to Translation Studies” in Surakarta, October 6-7, 2009.
