Main Article Content

It is arguable whether translation is a scientific approach. Academics have attempted to theorise translation; however, universal acceptance is yet to be achieved. Translation courses at Srinakharinwirot University are generally practice-based, and lack meaningful teaching of translation theories and concepts. This research examined thoughts and ideas found in essays titled ‘My Translation Approach’, written by students after their translation studies lessons. The findings indicated that the inclusion of translation studies in a syllabus of a translation course positively contributed to the students’ understanding of translation principles, resulting in implications related to innovative design to improving future translation courses.
