Shnayim Mikra

Question:
Can one read an English translation to fulfill the targum requirement for shnayim mikra?
Does the Halacha differ depending on the age/level?

Answer:

Ideally one should fulfill this obligation through Rashi or Onkelos. If one is unable to do either of the above an english translation that is based on Chazal and/or Rashi may be used to fulfill one’s obligation.

See Mishna Brura 285:5
