这次的翻译比赛中,英中语言对的译文提交和评价的参与度似乎都很低,特别是相对于英中工作的投标量而言。

中文论坛在版主和大家的积极参与下,已开始焕发生气。但参与翻译比赛的同仁仍然寥寥无几。

只是这一届如此吗,还是因为翻译比赛的公信度不足,攻击性feedback过多或决出冠军的程序有失公平,历届都如此呢?

个人理解 Sep 28, 2014

有27人参加,实话说不少了,但论坛没什么人关注,我估计有两个原因
1)每年一次,有时一年不止一次,疲了;
2)翻译比赛比的都是一般性的内容,而商业市场需要的主要是术业有专攻的专业翻译。如果整篇全是这样的文字,那谁都可以翻译,也许客户就会挑一个低价的翻译来做。如果专业性的文档中带了一些这类一般性的文字,它们往往属于边缘化、可有可无的内容,既没人关心,也没多少价值。你要是去蓝翔学挖掘机的话,一个经验丰富的教头写出来的教案肯定比林清玄写出来的更有用。

Too routine Sep 28, 2014

比赛文章 Sep 28, 2014

我觉得比赛所选择的这篇英文写得太一般, 没有特色 。其实适宜翻译比赛的, 能体现翻译水平的非专业性好文章应该不难找.

关于比赛文章的选取,相关子论坛也有充分的讨论。

正所谓鱼与熊掌不可兼得,如果选取专业性文章,会把并非这个专业领域的很多译员排除在外。虽然选取general的文章不能体现出参赛者在某个领域的专业知识,但也能很好地反映参赛者的中文写作、工作态度、翻译资质、理解能力及整体能力。

Zhoudan前辈,比赛还有一个月的投票期(从10月1日),需要你们这些前辈的投票才能彰显这个比赛的公信力,有空去逛逛)-:

其实有兴趣试试,但毕竟中翻英才是本人专长,不想班门弄斧

此外也是实在太忙了,近来吃饭都匆匆忙忙的。

也同意QHE说法,我自己就觉得原文也不太令人兴致勃勃。
