Message 1: Translation: Exam Papers in Non-mother Tongue
Date: 08-Oct-2006

Subject: Translation: Exam Papers in Non-mother Tongue

I am engaged in a research project on the educational impact of using 
translated exam papers in high/secondary schools where the language of
teaching is a non-mother tongue/second language (e.g. in South Africa:
English exam paper, with questions translated into Zulu).

I would like to consult experiences of similar issues, and would appreciate
it if I could be provided with information on where reports on this issue
can be found.
