The acquisition of translation practice knowledge is part of the overall curriculum of foreign
language students being a very important part of their skills’ portfolio which will accompany
them in the labor market. Translation practice skills are an effective and useful teaching

neglected for more modern approaches. For the FL students to have a sustainable development
in their translation practice skills, a thorough study on the approaches of translation
teaching is of paramount importance. This article will bring an overview of the actual context
of the translation teaching process in Albania demonstrating: the background of the teaching
process of translation, the importance of the translation skills for the students, teaching resources
and approaches, research into translation teaching. Finally this article comes to the
conclusion that the evolution of the translation teaching is affected by theories of translation
and that future translators should have as a basis the theories of teaching translation in their
studies. Furthermore, a system of continuous training should be established for the existing
lecturers of translation workshops in order for them to be in close contact with the developments
