Abstract

This research aimed at measuring the correlation between students’ vocabulary mastery and ability in translating English text into Indonesian at University of Muhammadiyah Malang. This research was based on the study done by the previous researcher that the students had difficulties in translating English text because they did not understand the meaning of certain word and structure, and also the most error done by students in translating Indonesian text was in word choice. This study tried to find if there is significant correlation between vocabulary mastery and ability in translating English text into Indonesian. Based on the statement above, the formulated problem was: is there any significant correlation between vocabulary mastery and translation ability? The research design used in this study was correlation research. It was intended to find if there is significant correlation between vocabulary mastery and ability in translating English text into Indonesian. The population in this study was the seventh semester students of English Department of University of Muhammadiyh Malang who join Translation II. The data used in this study were collected by using test. The test materials were vocabulary test and translating English text into Indonesian. The result of the study, based on the computation by using Pearson product moment correlation, showed that the coefficient between vocabulary mastery and ability in translat ing was 0.346. Consulting the r table in the df of 48, it can be seen that rt with the significance level 5% was 0.284. That is to say that the coefficient correlation from the statistical computation (ro) 0.346 is higher than the coefficient value from the table (0.284). It means that the result of this study is significant; therefore the hypothesis is accepted which states “there is a significant correlation between vocabulary mastery and the ability of translating English text into Indonesian.”
