This study investigates the warm-up technique applied in teaching sight translation
(SiT) through which the confidence of novice translators is underpinned as they start
learning how to sight translate. This technique consists of three rungs adopted from
Haddad''s Model for teaching interpreting, through which the student translators will
improve their translation skills by mastering the three stages respectively. To apply
such techniques, student translators'' performance is improved remarkably by
enhancing their self-confidence to manage the translation task successfully and
overcoming the faltering on the first phase of the translation task. The students of
second year / Department of Translation / College of Arts / University of Tikrit (
2017-2018) have been used as samples in this study to assess their performance as
they sight translate two selected journalistic texts by using a statistical T-test to elicit
the variances of their performance. The pre-test was conducted at the beginning of
the course, then this technique followed in teaching sight translation. Finally, a post-
test was conducted to assess the progress of their performance.
