This article aims to examine the notion of competence translative by comparing one hand to the notion of linguistic competence and secondly the concept of competence in sociological terms. Je défends l'idée que cette notion est plus proche du concept de Compétence Linguistique qu'on ne le dit habituellement dans les travaux de traductologie. I argue that this concept is closer to the concept of Language Proficiency than is usually stated in the work of translation. Cette notion permettrait en effet de rendre compte, dans une certaine mesure, de données relevées dans des études portant sur de jeunes interprètes et serait compatible avec certaines hypothèses élaborées dans le cadre de la neurolinguistique du bilinguisme. This concept would indeed accountable to some extent on data collected in studies of young performers and be compatible with certain assumptions made in the context of neurolinguistics of bilingualism.
