The quantitative data are taken from the pre-test and post-test results. The qualitative data are gained from questionnaire and interview. After analysis, it is found that e-portfolio influenced the students’ translation ability where the value is Sig. = 0.001 < α = 0.05. It was discovered that 82% students achieved higher score in acceptability. Meanwhile, 62% students achieved higher score in accuracy, and only 56% students achieved higher score in readability.
