Advantages of the transformational model

In translator training ® the idea that translation comprises a series of L internal transformations may be useful. Back-and-forth transformation of the surface sentences of the source text contributes to a better understanding of the text, and transformations carried out in producing the TL surface contribute to translators’ awareness of the TL devices.


In the assessment of translations ® taking into consideration L internal transformations may also be helpful, in determining the degree of equivalence.


In machine translation ® If there exists a common area between the two Ls, i.e., if there are lexical units and grammatical structures in the two Ls whose equivalence can be predicted, then within this area there is no need for the skills or previous experience of a translator. This kind of transfer can be done even by a machine, with some pre- and post-editing.
