» Técnicas de traducción periodística
By Kamal Mrabet | Published 11/22/2012 | Spanish | Recommendation:
El periodismo ha mantenido desde su nacimiento estrechas relaciones con la traducción, y el material traducido en los medios no deja de aumentar día tras día.

» Translation Agency Secret Weapon
By Technolex | Published 04/28/2016 | Translator Education | Recommendation:
In this article we will tell you about a technical side of a translation agency work. Many beginning translators and inexperienced customers of translation services are not aware of this side. We are speaking of so-called CAT tools (computer-aided translation) and CAT systems. These are applications using translation memory technology (TM means translation memory).

In this article we will try to tell you what is happening in a translation agency after your order has been received in the pipeline. It would seem there’s nothing to tell: “the text is received, sent to translator, received from translator, and sent back to the customer”.

在波士頓,特別是在人名、街名、地鐵站,甚至城鎮的翻譯,都帶有濃厚的本土特色,沒有所謂對與錯的問題,約定俗成,但求說得出、容易記得到便是,目的只是給不諳英語的僑胞一個方便,就不太著重雅與不雅的考慮,例如﹕惡屎佛街、乞臣街、泰勒街都屬此列。隨著新移民多了,其中不少是外省移民,總覺得廣東人的音譯是怪怪的,加上文化習性不同,頗難接受這種『土翻譯』。
