Abstract
This article aims at describing the development of translation theories, presenting the assessment in translation studies and describing the current paradigm of the research on translation. This article is written based on the qualitative approach. The data are taken from documents and informants. The techniques for data collecting are content analysis and in depth-interviewing. The collected data are analyzed by using the interactive analysis. The findings show that first, the development of translation theory are classified into four phases; they are the development phase theory based on literature theory of translation, the development theory phase based on linguistics theory of translation, the development theory phase based on culture theory of translation, and the development theory phase based on professional theory of translation. Second, the assessment applied in translation studies focuses on accuracy, acceptability and readability. Third, the paradigm of the current issues regarding the research on translation is divided into two, they are the research of translation based on process and the research of translation based on product. Research that leads to processes and functions seems to have not been explored much maximally. Translation research based on process reflects behavioral theory with activities along with the translation proves and helps identifying strategies used by translators even if they are in the complex activities. Meanwhile, product-based research is emanated from translation research that tends to lead to the work of translation. Mostly, the data analysis is done by the method of analyzing the translation works. The research on translation works is a research-oriented collaboration between translation theory and linguistic theory based on product research. The next challenges of translation research could be done for translation activities dealing with machine translators and the translation teaching or translation training.
