Why you should INVEST in translation, and not just BUY it

Why you should INVEST in translation, and not just BUY it | Multilingues | Scoop.it
When you make an investment, you think of the big picture and the long-term value you will gain by investing. That is exactly how you should think of translation.

Charles Tiayon's curator insight, July 29, 2:40 AM

Now, when is translation a purchase? Translation is a purchase when it is thought of only in the short-term; when perhaps the need for translation is urgent and somewhat sudden. For example, if a company has a tradeshow coming up in one month, and realizes that there will be potential customers in attendance from Germany. They want to impress their potential German customers by providing their brochure in German, so they engage a vendor for a one-off translation. Another example might be a manufacturer that is shipping product overseas and realizes that its service agreement says that it will provide its user manual in the native language. The company contacts its vendor and makes an order for a quick turn-around translation. These types of instances could qualify as a translation purchase because there was no previous planning or long-term goal involved. However, in these cases, companies are not building value for future translations.

Gestão de qualidade em comunidades on-line de tradução

Este trabalho pretendeu investigar as atividades de três comunidades on-line que disponibilizavam serviços de tradução de modo voluntário e gratuito através da internet, a fim de identificar e avaliar suas práticas colaborativas.  Registros institucionais disponíveis em seus websites foram usados como fonte de dados, assim como interações entre seus participantes e textos traduzidos. A investigação teve como seus principais referenciais teóricos pesquisas sobre os impactos das novas tecnologias sobre a gestão de qualidade na área de tradução por Garcia (2009), Santos (2008) e Martins (2006), entre outros autores.  A pesquisa demonstrou que as atividades desses grupos de tradução são capazes de atender às necessidades de alguns segmentos alvo com nível adequado de qualidade, presumindo-se que esse sucesso ocorra principalmente como resultado das práticas colaborativas articuladas nas comunidades em que os participantes estão inseridos."

Em um evento anual que a Microsoft se reúne com seus parceiros, ela aproveitou para apresentar uma das novidades mais interessantes para o Skype: a tradução automática e (quase) simultânea.

Embora essa ainda seja uma fase de testes para a nova funcionalidade, o diálogo entre duas pessoas de regiões completamente distintas sem a necessidade da fluência em outro idioma está cada vez mais próximo graças a iniciativa da empresa. Veja no vídeo abaixo uma demonstração do processo de tradução da ferramenta:
