Resumen:   Would language users, particularly those currently in the educational system, rather use their language foreign language skills, and learn more, to read in the original languages, or do they appreciate the availability of translations? Is the alleged bad reputation of translations recognisable in university students, or is it a thing of the past? This paper reports a questionnaire study of first-year students in translation studies in other subjects, tapping their attitudes to and beliefs about translations. The results indicate that although many frequently reported common-sense suspicions towards translations prevail, conceptualisations of translations also harboured self-contradictory aspects. Translation students turned out to have no immunity to commonly held prejudices. [Source: Author]
