Abstract EN

As most learners and teachers described, writing is a challenging task due to its different aspects.

Accordingly, learners frequently tend to transfer from L1 to L2.

Technological development brought various tools to help learners overcome their difficulties that Google Translate (GT) is the ideal option among students.

Therefore, this study examines the impact GT has on EFL students' writing performance.

The research opted for an experimental design wherein 32 second-year students at Badji Mokhtar University were under investigation.

Results revealed that students' writings slightly enhanced.

They produced more unique words, fewer spelling mistakes, better arrangement of ideas, and longer sentences.
