The findings of the research shows that 51 data (83,61%) are accurate, 9 data (14,75%) are less accurate, and 1 data (1,64%) are inaccurate. The analysis on the acceptability level of translation shows that 43 data (70,49%) are counted as acceptable translation, 17 data (27,87%) are counted as less acceptable translation, and 1 data (1,64%) are counted as unacceptable translation. The technique which produces high level of accuracy is couplets. This technique produces 17 accurate data (85%). Whereas, reduction is creating the most inaccurate data with 1 data (100%). Similar with the high level of accuracy, couplets becomes the most dominant technique which produces acceptable data. It creates 14 acceptable data (70%). While, the technique which belongs to low level of acceptability is reduction with 1 data (1,64%).
