The theory of the translation quality assessment of Mrs. Carmen Valero Garces (1994) is one of the most important theories in the field of linguistics that is organized in order to recognize the quality of the translations and analyze the quality of literary translated texts. This theory can be an effective framework for criticizing the quality of Holy Qur'an translations due to the factors that determine the amount of functionality and quality of translation texts and their correspondence with the source text. Garces offers four levels for evaluation of translation that are: semantic - lexical level, syntactic - morphological level, Discursive - Functional Level and Stylistic - pragmatically level. By specifying paradigm for each one, he tries to provide information on the bottlenecks and possibilities of translators in order to evaluate translation with a better and more accurate quality. The current study, relying on the undeniable importance of this combined model in the qualitative assessment of translations, intends to evaluate the quality of selected translations of Surah Al Baqarah by Ayatollah Mohammad Yazdi of the Holy Quran. For this purpose, first and briefly, we introduce the theory of Garces, and then mentioned the applicable cases of this theory that are cited on the Examples extracted from the translation of this Surah. The most important findings of this research that have been written based on Descriptive - analytical and statistical methods, expresses that firstly: the Yandi's translation from the perspective of components of Garces's theory can be criticized and evaluated qualitatively. Secondly, this translation is also an interpretive and explanatory, and there is many data for the subcategory of creative definition and expansion, as well as is included countless data that can be adapted to the Garcos theory and its various subcategories, such as: Similarity, syntactic reduction and expansion, Syntactic complexity, and transmission of ambiguity.
