Produkt-Orientierte Übersetzung: Weg Von Der Insel, Uwe Muegge Apr 2015

Produkt-Orientierte Übersetzung: Weg Von Der Insel, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

Um maximale Produktivität und hohe Qualität, d.h. minimale Nacharbeit nach der eigentlichen Übersetzungsphase, zu erreichen, müssen alle Übersetzenden mit Translation- Memory-Systemen arbeiten – selbst wenn es nur um die Übersetzung einzelner Sätze geht. Nur wenn alle Übersetzenden und Revisoren durchgängig mit Translation- Memory-Systemen arbeiten, ist sichergestellt, dass bereits übersetzte und genehmigte Inhalte geschützt sind und dass die stilistische Konsistenz auch innerhalb der größten Projekte gewährleistet ist. Wenn es neben der Verwendung von Translation-Memory-Systemen noch einen Faktor gibt, der für den Erfolg produktorientierter Übersetzungsprojekte entscheidend ist, dann ist es die Verfügbarkeit von umfassenden mehrsprachigen Terminologiedatenbanken zu Beginn derartiger Projekte. Dabei ist ...

Teaching Translation Technology In The 21st Century, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

The author's definition of 'technical translation' is pragmatic: Technical translation differs from literary translation in that in a technical translation project, all texts are linked with a product. The product-centric nature of technical translation projects requires that technical translation projects are processed in a translation memory system to ensure terminological and stylistic consistency, among other things.

Teaching Localization: 6 Practices That Make A Difference (Part Ii), Uwe Muegge Feb 2014

Teaching Localization: 6 Practices That Make A Difference (Part Ii), Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

Translation memory (TM) systems have become commonplace in today’s translation courses – sometimes for the wrong reasons. If students are told that the only reason for using a translation memory is to leverage previous translations, these students will not use a TM system for non-repetitive texts. That teaching approach might also be frustrating for students who start with an empty translation memory, as these students may not get any immediate benefit from using TM technology. If, however, students are introduced to the translation memory as a quality assurance tool, the return on investment is instant.

Teaching Computer-Assisted Translation In The 21st Century, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

Offering translation technology courses is easier than it ever was: Cloud-based learning management systems and translation management systems offer educational institution the powerful tools they need to prepare future translation and localization professionals for the demands of the 21st century. In the past, instructors teaching translation technology would use a different application for each educational task: One for the distribution of learning materials, another for collaborative learning, and yet another for testing; not to mention separate terminology management, translation memory, machine translation, and project management tools. In a cloud-based translation technology environment, it is possible to reduce the number of ...

Ten Good Reasons For Using A Translation Memory, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

More than 20 years after the first commercial translation memory products became available, surveys indicate that while the vast majority of those surveyed do use a translation memory system, less than 30 percent of translators use this type of tool for every translation project or on a daily basis. Studies of translation memory usage among even the most technically advanced users show that the benefits of using a translation memory - beyond reusing existing translation - are still not well understood.

Technical texts, i.e., technical literature proper (data sheets, user documentation, scientific publications, etc.), as well as the whole range of medical and legal texts, have one feature in common: Their authors make generous use of: a) words not in common usage, e.g., dongle (a computer hardware device that prevents unauthorized use of protected software); and/or b) words that are in common usage but have a slightly, or even totally, different meaning in the special language, e.g., bug (in the general sense, this means a small insect, but in the computer software field, this is a small ...
