Introduccing a Self-evaluation Grid for Translation Assignments

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


This chapter will report the results of a study introducing a student self-evaluation grid for translation assignments, based on previous work by Marc Orlando. The grid described here was developed with and for second-year students of English Translation at the University of Helsinki during the autumn terms of 2015 and 2016. This process and the results are described in the light of a pilot study conducted with the students. Based on student feedback, the grid seems to provide a structured framework for evaluating both one's translation process and the translation product, but there are also areas to be developed in this system.
