dc.description.abstractTranslators need good reading skills, but first-year translation students often demonstrate only basic reading literacy which often results in inaccurate interpretation of the source text and a divergent message in the target text, often strongly influenced by the prevailing opinion in the target culture and/or by the translator’s personal opinion. We tested first-year and third-year students in their reading literacy in the source language (English), their ability to summarize what they read and to translate the text into the target language (Slovenian). The results show that the freshmen’s basic reading skills are satisfactory, but more advanced reading skills, such as interpretative and creative reading, present problems, which result in deficient summaries in the target language. In addition, the students’ creative reading is negatively affected by insufficient general knowledge and, surprisingly, their (or their culture’s) ideological point of view. The ability of the third-year students to understand and re-write a text in the target language was much improved, but the ideological influence was still there, especially in the parts of the text that were difficult, or close to the students’ personal experience.it_IT
