This paper investigates the effect of Locus of Control (LOC) on translation students’ achievement. Participants of the study included 151 senior students who studied English Translation at Mashhad Universities and Institutes of higher education. The LOC scale was administered to both male and female students. The Persian version of LOC (Ghonsooly & Elahi, 2010) was used to measure the participants’ Locus of Control. The results of the statistical analyses revealed that students’ Locus of Control has a significant and positive relationship with their translation achievement. The results of the interview phase of the study are also consistent with the statistical analyses.
