The paper focuses on the analysis of the Macedonian translations of two English private security terms by the students of the Faculty of Security in Skopje. To this end, the authors designed a questionnaire with English sentences containing the selected terms that were to be translated into Macedonian. The questionnaire was distributed to two groups of students:
(a) students who have attended lectures in English language but have not attended lectures in System of Private Security, and (b) students who have attended lectures in both subjects.
The authors expected that the students with knowledge of both subjects would provide more accurate answers in choosing the Macedonian lexical equivalents. Besides determining students’ knowledge of the meanings of the selected terms, the research findings will also help the authors to reassess and tailor the syllabi in the respective subjects in order to better meet students’ needs.
