Abstract. This article brings forth a possible teaching paradigm that re-evaluates the pedagogical benefits of teaching translation techniques to business students. While rejecting the one-sided structural/grammatical translation method, we propose a model based on the Lexical Approach which draws on the lexical, paradigmatic, as well as syntagmatic equivalence between the source language and the target language.

Key words: translation competence, translation skills


(6) Body of the text

Headings:       bold, aligned left, separated from the text by a blank line


Bold should only be used for the title, subtitles, and headings.

Italics should be used for emphasis, examples interpolated in the text, non-English words and book/journal titles.

‘Single quotation marks’ enclose translations, e.g. Romanian active circulante ‘current assets’.

“Double quotation marks” enclose brief citations running in the text (longer quotations, indented on all sides, are  not put between quotation marks).


Footnotes should be marked consecutively throughout the text by a number directly following a punctuation mark.

Figures, tables etc.

Figures, tables etc. should be provided on a separate page (with appropriate reference in the text) or inserted as moveable objects in the text.

Citations and quotations

Citations and quotations are followed by parentheses containing author’s surname, year of publication and a reference to page(s) – e.g. (Popescu 2004: 45). Brief citations are interpolated in the text, between double quotation marks. Longer quotations (5-10 lines) should appear as separate blocks, indented left and right and separated from the text by an extra-line space above and below, without quotation marks.


(7) References

References should be indicated in the typescript by giving the author's name, with the year of publication in parentheses - e.g. (Popescu 2004: 45). If several papers by the same author from the same year are cited, a, b, c, etc. should be put after the year of publication. The references should be listed in full at the end of the paper in the following standard form:
