Meanwhile, the second place is taken by the technique of adjustment in terms of subtraction with 21.5%. The third major technique of adjustment used is in terms of addition with 19.8%, followed by the technique of adjustment in terms of subtraction and alteration with 5.8% of 121 data and the last is in terms of addition and alteration which amounts 1.7% from the whole data. From this configuration, the findings of the technique of adjustments suggest that the translation is source text oriented.

Meanwhile, the purpose to carry an equivalent communication load takes second place with 24%. The third major purpose with 19.8% is taken by producing semantically equivalence structure.
