Translation unit research can be divided into the process-oriented and the product-oriented perspective The current research belongs to the former one. With 7 juniors of English majors as participants, the current research probes into student translators’ translation process through TAM based on a mixed analysis of TAPs. Research question is: What similarities and differences can be found between C-E and E-C translation unit? It is hoped that research findings can shed some light on the translation unit research and education of student translators’ translation competence.
