Summary/Abstract: The study examines the act of translation and the exercise of paraphrasing positing the latter as a mode of enhancing language-processing skills. With paraphrasing seen as a key pre-translation step, the paper argues the case for its use in the translation classroom as a tool for refining reading comprehension and textual interpretive strategies, and consequently boosting performance in translation practice.
