The method used on this research was descriptive qualitative method. The data were obtained by applying some methods, i.e. observing the video, transcribing the utterances. The difference between the two language systems required the interpreter to apply some shifts; level shift, and category shift such as structure shift, unit shift, class shift and intra-system shift.
