The study reports on an experiment in which three teachers of translation translated a text from Finnish into English (two subjects translating from L1 into L2 and one from L2 into L1). The purpose was to test the subjects' sensitivity to the relational structure of the source text, more specifically to the Finnish clitic particle -kin.
