Abstract

Woman is defined as one of the most important studies of sociolinguistics because it has great impact on all aspects of life including language. Besides, doing research in the field concerned is a priority. The current study is about a translation assessment of the resignation speech of British female politician Teresa May into Arabic. It aims to know how news websites belong to International News Agencies render the speech of the politician mentioned above into Arabic. The researcher analyses the Arabic translations of news websites so as to understand what methods and strategies of translation did they employ and did they render the most important points of her speech? To answer the abovementioned questions, the researcher selected five available Arabic translations of five international news websites and he carried out theoretical and practical parts which include the original speech, the translated versions, methods and strategies of translation, and he created a model of translation assessment of news websites translations.
