This article presents research carried out by the authors with students of scientific-technical translation according to the case study model. The research seeks to determine the needs of translation students in respect of scientific-technical texts. Students' opinions about these types of text and the difficulties they may pose for successful translation are analysed. The opinions are partial and do not take account of all aspects of scientific-technical discourse and its translation, but they should be kept in mind when designing manuals for scientific-technical translation.
