This study, CHALLENGES OF ENGLISH – FRENCH TRANSLATION: THE EXPERIENCE OF SELECTED JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS contains concise information that will serve as a framework or guide for your project work. The project study is well-researched for academic purposes and are usually provided in complete chapters with adequate References.
This research work was carried out to assess challenges of English – French translation: in selected junior secondary schools in Abeokuta South Local Government area of Ogun State. The research adopted a survey design with the use of questionnaire to get information from one hundred and twenty five (125) students randomly selected from five schools in Abeokuta South Local Government area of Ogun State. The results revealed that, the attitude of majority of the students towards learning of translation is quite encouraging. As most of the students were favourably disposed towards the learning of translation while only few were not. Based on the findings, the study therefore recommends that trained and competent specialist teachers be employed to handle translation aspects of the French language teaching and learning in schools.

APPENDIX: QUESTION DESIGNED FOR LEARNERS
Translation typically has been used to transfer written or spoken SL (source language) texts to equivalent written or spoken TL(target language) texts.
In general, the purpose of translation is to reproduce various kinds of texts including religious, literary, scientific and philosophical texts in another language and thus making them available to wider readers.Nigeria is no doubt a multilingual and multicultural country. An average Nigeria consciously or unconsciously makes use of two or more languages including his/her mother tongue. It therefore becomes necessary to talk about TRANSLATION.
Translation ,which of course pre-supposes bi- or multilingualism, is a universal human activity that has been made necessary, through ages ,by the ever- growing interactions among different speech communities; it can be described as the rendition in a target language of a text or discourse given in a source language (Ladmiral,1994:11) in Jimoh Y(2002).
“Bilingualism no doubt leads to attempt generally made by bilinguals to practice translation either consciously or unconsciously”, and this has been leading to the erroneous belief that all bilinguals are capable of practicing translation, especially in Nigeria, and with specific reference to English/French translationJimoh Y..(2002:448).
The interpretative school of translation identifies three systematic stages involved in the translation of any text or discourse; and according to Lederer (1994) in Jimoh (2002), they include;
In the case of written translation that this study tried to investigate, however, there is need to add a fourth stage, which we refer to as EDITING .This is when both the original text and its translation are put side by side with a view to ensuring faithfulness to (as opposed to betrayal of)the original text. At this stage too, all necessary corrections are made so as to produce a relatively perfect translation.
Statement of the Problem
The difference between a source language and a target language and the variation in their cultures makes the process of translating a real challenge: Theproblem of translating has always been whether to translate literally or freely. This study therefore set out to investigate the challenges of English- French translation in selected junior secondary schools in Abeokuta South Local Government.
1.4 Significance of the Study
The study is significant in that it would make teachers to be aware of the various methods andtechniques of teaching translation fromEnglish to French in particular. This research will also enables learners to see translation as an important aspect to be mastered; for the knowledge will allow them to communicate effectively and give the appropriate translation to words, phrases, clauses and sentences
