Abstract

This study aimed at identifying the strategy used by Monica Dwi Chresnayani as a translator in translating idioms found in Cecelia Ahern’s novel entitled “P.S I Love You” into Bahasa Indonesia. Moreover, the scope of this study is limited to the classification of the strategy used for translating decoding idioms, based on Mona Baker’s theory in her book “In Other Words, a coursebook on Translation. This study used descriptive research design. It was intended to describe the idiom translation phenomenon. The data of this study are sentences containing decoding idiom found in English version of “P.S I Love You” novel, its translation results in Bahasa Indonesia, and the strategy to translate each of them. The main instrument which is used in collecting the data in this study is the researcher herself. The findings of this study reveal that idiom translation strategy by paraphrase is the most common strategy used by the translator in translating decoding idioms found in “P.S I Love You” novel. Meanwhile, the second most common strategy is the strategy of using idiom of similar meaning but dissimilar form. Then, it is followed by the next strategy which is translating by omission, and the last is the strategy of using an idiom of similar meaning and form. Therefore, it can be concluded that the main four strategies of translating idiom suggested by Baker were all applied by the translator.
