Code-switching has attracted many studies in recent years especially in non-native English speaking countries. In some parts of Indonesia, code-switching has been the topic of research. This paper particularly seeks to examine the effect of code-switching on Indonesian Medanese student’s speaking confidence and investigate their attitude towards it. A total of 34 students from English Education Study Program, Faculty of Teacher Training and Education, Universitas Muhammadiyah Sumatera Utara were chosen purposely to be involved as the participants in the study. An interview and observation were applied to assess their spoken English skill and examine how they interact with each other throughout the sessions. While the ten item questionnaires with a Likert scale were distributed to students to collate their feedback on the implementation of code-switching. It was then explicitly analyzed based on each indicator of speaking, including vocabulary, grammar, fluency, pronunciation and lecturer’s role. Our findings lead to the conclusion and suggest that code-switching can be harnessed as a technique in enhancing students’ speaking confidence since students think positively towards the implementation of code-switching. Hence, based on our findings, it is recommended that lecturers use English and Indonesian at an interchange to lower proficient students so as to give students better comprehension of grammar rules, structure, pronunciation, and subsequently improve their fluency and confidence in speaking.

Mantra Jamuan Laut is spells or words used by a sea-handler in the process of Ritual Ceremony among Malay society in Kabupaten Serdang Bedagai, North Sumatra - Indonesia. This study deals with translation technique, ideologies and quality of the translated text of sea repast incantation from Malay language into English. There was 82 clauses of translated text as the data. The source of data is the utterances of a sea-handler and FGD. Descriptive qualitative was applied by using Molina and Albir’s theory to find out the translation techniques meanwhile the theory of Nababan & Machali used to figure out the quality of the translation. Considering the fact that the data which consists of four incantations are translated by five translators, then the results of their translation vary. From the analysis, it was found that there were 11 techniques of 18 applied with literal as the most dominant technique. Thereby the translators embraced foreignization ideology that mainly focuses on the source text. The utilization of foreignization ideology and the use of source language-oriented translation techniques showed that intercultural and thematic knowledge of the translators are insufficient. Since the frequency of literal technique was less than 25%, the quality of translated-text was regarded as ‘fair’.

This study seeks to investigate the quality of translation generated by a popular Machine Translation (MT) platform, viz. Google Translate (GT) in translating the content of a Russian flight charterer’s website from English into Indonesian. To analyze the translation quality produced by MT, we compared the original translation of the website texts translated by a human translator and the machine-translated version. The translation quality is limited to the readability level. The texts serving as the data were collected from the menus of a Russian flight chartering service website which was originally translated by an Indonesian translator. An analysis further discovered that the translation produced by MT is divided into two quality categories: less readable and readable. The less readable translation is caused by MT’s inability to adjust to stylistic forms in Indonesian, failure to do adaptation strategy and in some cases, MT tends to follow the same sentence structure of the original text (source text).
