Abstract

Linguistics has often been regarded as a theory-based discipline since its development in the 18th century. In the context of education in Indonesia, the authors identify that most of undergraduate level language-based study program takes form as a theoretical course rather than vocational one. If there is one, based on our search in the Indonesian Government Higher Education Database, rather than developing the potential of linguistics branches to the fullest in the core of curriculum, universities tend to incorporate other academic disciplines in their language-based vocational curriculum, e.g. the inclusion of tourism and banking fields of study in the curriculum. This makes the purity of linguistics as a science shades, thus public’s misconception that linguistics is merely an inapplicable science is inevitable. Through a critical literature review, the authors aim to promote translation as an alternative to a language-based vocational course at the undergraduate level. We are assured that translation consisting of audio, visual, written, and sign translations can captivate the essence of linguistics in its application. In this article, we discover that each linguistics branch, from the study of sounds to generative linguistics, contributes to the success of translation. Hence, translation can benefit from theoretical linguistics ending linguistics to highly value something it owns and turn theoretical linguistics into applied one. However, due to the study limitation, we have not been able to identify the perception of stakeholders, either university academia members or graduate recruiters, about this issue. Therefore, further study regarding the efforts to overcome the limitation needs to be generated.
