This paper focuses on the problems and solutions in designing a translation cours, with competency-based approach, for the post-graduate students. It starts with some background information about the idea, then describes the tentative translation course design and explains the objective of using competency-based approach in the design. The discussion of the expected advantages and disadvantages of the idea is put forward before the identification of the problems and the solutions. The problems deal largely with the learning orientation and the assessment. It is argued that learning to translate, despite the competency-based approach it employs, has to do with text production. Therefore, the translation course should focus on both the product (text) and the process (production). Accordingly, the design should integrate product and process oriented learning as well as criterion-referenced tests and portfolios. At the end of the paper, the conclusion summarizes what has been discussed.
