This study investigates the use of MT by first-, second-and third-year translation students for different learning tasks. The results of a self-report survey suggest that most students make regular use of MT, although the frequency of use decreases as they progress through their studies, particularly for reading tasks. Our results highlight the need for a comprehensive approach to the development of MT knowledge and PE skills among undergraduate students, using the concept of MT literacy as a stepping stone.
