This brief and intensive study explores the importance of norms in translation process. The application of norms not only brings accuracy but also reduces ambiguity in translation. These are norms which assist with translators to translate a text accurately. It is reality that the application of norms limits the translators, but makes translations acceptable to the audience. This study indicates the implication of norms violation during translation. The ultimate goal(s) of conducting this study is to point out  the role of norms in translation process. It is a library research which is conducted to find out what will happen if we violate the norms. At the end, I come up with this decision that, if we violate the norms during translation, so we could not communicate the message accurately. And, we also cannot convey the sense of a source text to a target text properly.
