The present study offers a general view of the main approaches to
translation quality assessment and its current problems. It aims to
contribute to clarifying the most fundamental notions involved in the
evaluation of translated literary texts, focusing on the necessity to
achieve a systematic and objective practical implementation. The author
proposes a literary translation quality assessment analysis and presents it
as an effective methodology that might be applied to literary translated
texts, as it is argued to be flexible enough to be redefined in order to be
adapted to the specific features of each analysis.

The corpus of literary texts analysed includes the seventeen translations
of the Spanish picaresque novel El Lazarillo de Tormes into the English
language published in Great Britain and in the United States. David
Rowland's text (1586), the first translation of El Lazarillo de Tormes into
the English language, has been given special prominence; it has been
analysed in a more exhaustive way accounting for its noticeable impact on
the shaping of English literature. The data collected have enabled the
author to arrive at conclusions concerning the quality of the target texts
and to verify how the relevance of assessment criteria varies in each analysis.
