This paper entitled The Correlation between Students’ Grammar Mastery and Their Translating Indonesian into English Ability. This research is generally aimed to find out the correlation between students’ grammar mastery and their translating Indonesian into English ability done at the seventh semester of English study program of Bale Bandung University in the academic year of 2021. Twenty-eight students were taken as the sample of this research through random sampling technique. This research used grammar test and translation test to know the students’ skill in grammar and translating Indonesian into English as a research instrument. The result was analysed by using Pearson Product Moment Correlation and showed that the r value is 0.296. Thus, the r value is between 0.200-0.400 and included into the low category. It means that the degree of correlation is low and positive. The value of t observed is 1.436, the critical value t- table is 2.056 at 26 degrees of freedom and 0.05 level significance of two tails, as the value of the t observed is smaller than the value of t-table 1.436<2.056. Based on the data above, the research concludes that the correlation between students’ grammar mastery and their translating Indonesian into English ability done in the seventh semester of English education study program of Bale Bandung University in academic year 2021 is low, positive and not significant. After giving and analysing the result of the instruments, this research finds out that when the students have a minimum level in grammar mastery, it does not mean that they get poor ability in translating Indonesian into English. However, students need to improve their grammar skills because when they translate a text based on its grammar, they will get better results.
