Translation Studies has yet to build up a generally accepted definition and model of translation competence. As a matter of fact, the concept of translation competence has been defined in several manners. As detailed models for linguistic competence have been developed, componential models for translation competence should also be proposed accordingly. This paper summarized different definitions of translation competence based on the existing literature, introducing linguistic/text competence, strategic competence, and self-monitoring competence. It also presented an overview of research on translation competence and its acquisition, with particular emphasis on the PACTE’s models. It is possible to claim that translation competence is multifaceted, and the lack of either subtype will exert a negative effect on its integrity
