This paper examines both aspects of translation quality assurance: translator competence and translation product. It provides a model for assessing both elements with some measure of objectivity, based on the notion that translation is not a haphazard activity, but rather a rational, objective-driven, result-focused process that yields a quantifiable product meeting a set of specifications, tacit or expressed, against which the quality of the product can be measured.
