The aim of this article is to establish guidelines for a skill-based curriculum in translator training through introduction to translation (into the mother tongue). I begin by describing the current challenges that arise from curriculum development, together with the pedagogical needs they entail, before going on to explain the basics of skill-based training and the characteristics of translation proficiency. I propose a skill and translation task-based approach for translator training, which includes the following: theoretical framework; categories of specific competences; operationalization of competences; sequencing; development of teaching units; and assessment.
