Translation Quality Assessment of Academic Research Titles: A Case Study of Islamic Education PhD at Yarmouk University
This study aims to examine the level of translation accuracy applied to the titles of PhD theses presented in the field of Islamic Education at Yarmouk University. A detailed analysis was conducted to reveal the types of errors present in the translation and these were subsequently categorized into six sections, based on the nature of the error. Furthermore, errors were assessed based on their impact on the translation accuracy, which determined the level of its acceptability. The findings uncovered major translation errors in the majority of the titles, many of which are the result of a shortfall in the translator’s terminology; general, educational, or Islamic. It is recommended that researchers and scientific research deanships should be aware of the importance of accurate translation being applied to academic research work and the positive outcomes that would ensue, not only on individual research work, but also on the university’s reputation.
