Abstract

The aim of this study was to find out the correlation between grammar ability and translation skill of the Fifth semester students of English department at Jambi University in Academic Year 2017/2018. The population of this study were the fifth semester students of English department at Jambi University. Using the cluster random sampling, Class regular A came out as the sample class and class B as the pilot class. This study used two kinds of test, a grammar test and a translation test. Grammar test was in form of multiple choices, while the translation test was in form of essay. The result of this study shows that the average of the Fifth semester students’ grammar ability is in satisfactory level, and the translation is in good translation level. The Pearson Product moment calculated that the correlation coefficient is 0.692. Moreover, the tcount ≥ ttable or 4.285 ≥ 2.086, which means that the correlation is significant. Based on the findings of the study, it can be concluded that the grammar ability can significantly influence the translation result. While it does not signify a causal relationship, it can be inferred that good grammar ability tends to go with good translation skill and so the otherwise.
