Abstract
Translating is conducted to convey source language messages to target language but due to language systems difference, translator might face difficulties. Different types of French pronominal verbs, for example, are not easy to be translated into Indonesian. This study attempts to investigate the Indonesian translation of French pronominal. The study is conducted by using the qualitative method where the data are collected from French comics, which is three series of Tintin comics: Tintin en Amérique (1932), Tintin au Congo (1931), and Tintin au Tibet (1960) in Indonesian version. The data is analyses using Molina and Albir’s translation’s theory (2002). The findings reveal that modulation is the most used strategy, followed by established equivalent. Modulation strategy as the most used shows that change in perspective ensures that the message is easy for target readers to comprehend while also making the dialogs more fluid in the target language. Context and translator’s competence are important in translating comics. The most reflexive pronominal verbs are found in Captain Haddock’s utterances which show his selfishness. The results of this study also indicate that despite having many strategies, Molina and Albir’s theories cannot be fully referred to translating texts; it is necessary to refer to and/or combine with other translation theories, such as Newmark’s (1988).
