This paper elaborates the actual processes of translation viewed by Indonesian translators in the making of translation works. Twelve experienced translators having various educational backgrounds, from tourism, English, education, chemistry, pharmacy, law, to philosophy were purposively invited to get involved in this research. This research implemented a descriptive qualitative method aimed to reveal the actual processes of translation experienced by the translators in their day to day activities to deal with translation works. The data were collected through a questionnaire to identify the translators’ actual processes, a deep interview to clarify the translators’ views on their translation practices, and some relevant documents of the translators’ works to confirm the overall translation processes undertaken by the translators. The results showed that the actual processes followed by the translators in the making of translation works were reading the source documents to comprehend the overall messages of the original texts, looking for some relevant references to better understand the source texts, i.e. relevant dictionaries, glossaries in similar topics, theories to support the translator’s understanding of the materials to translate, translating from the source language to the target language, hiring proofreaders to look for some inputs and suggestions, and revising process to see whether or not some parts of the translation works should be revised.
