This paper explores the issue of translation competence evaluation by adopting Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), for AHP is a systematic and hierarchic evaluation system including a complex multi-objective decision-making method with multiple criteria, and multiple levels of indicators. Combining the quantitative method and the qualitative method, AHP has the merits of evaluating complex and difficult decision-making problems to obtain the optimal solution by calculating maximum weight, so AHP has become an important analytic evaluation tool in various field. Likewise, translation competence evaluation includes a detailed assessment of subcompetences, such as language knowledge application subcompetence, intercultural communication subcompetence, proofreading subcompetence  and so on, of which the components interact with each other and are not feasible to calculate accurately, thus formulating a complex decision-making system. However, AHP has the advantages in this aspect. Therefore, this paper attempts to study the adaptability and practicality of AHP in translation competence evaluation.
