English term or phrase: crowdsourcing
Definition from Jeff Howe:
Crowdsourcing is the act of taking a job traditionally performed by a designated agent (usually an employee) and outsourcing it to an undefined, generally large group of people in the form of an open call.

Example sentence(s):
  • Cash is key to getting people to participate, but successful crowdsourcing taps into a well of passion about a product that stretches beyond monetary incentives. Bloomberg L.P.
  • Surprisingly for a sector that has traditionally relied on volunteers to make up for its limited resources, development institutions have been slow to embrace "crowdsourcing" as a model for adding value The World Bank Group
  • So, are crowdsourced translations the future of our business? Probably not. Will crowdsourcing play a role in some sectors of the translation business? Probably. ForeignExchange Translations, Inc.

podugovaranje grupe ljudi


Definition from Wikipedia:
Izraz Crowdsourcing (Podugovaranje grupe ljudi) - je nastao spajanjem reči (kovanica) Crowd (grupa ljudi/gomila) i Outsourcing (podugovaranje) i podrazumeva uzimanje posla koji tradicionalno izvršava osoba određena za tu vrstu posla (obično zaposleni) i vršenje podugovaranja veće grupe ljudi za izvršenje tog posla, u formi otvorenog poziva.

Example sentence(s):
  • Tehnička zavisnost na Majkrosoftu se tako smanjuje na nekoliko slabih elemenata: korporativni sektor, nevladine organizacije ili bilo koje telo civilnog sektora koje « podugovara » rad na kompjuteru i internet serveri. - - globalizacija.com  
  • Mrežne organizacija: sastoje se od “jezgra” aktivnosti, dok se većina funkcija podugovaraju (outsourcing) – - Beogradska Bankarska Akademija  
  • - tako i iz privatnog i NVO sektora, pre svega kroz stvaranje mogućnosti podugovaranja i stabilan mehanizam finansiranja usluga, kroz princip ''novac prati korisnika'' - Mreza istrazivaca socijalnih prilika

No  Mira Stepanovic: Nažalost koleginice, vaš predlog "podugovaranje grupe ljudi" se ne pojavljuje ni u jednoj od navedenih rečenica; jedan od linkova koji ste naveli ne funkcioniše; definicija koju ste naveli je vaš prevod i ne postoji na srpskom jeziku na navedenom linku.

No  Aleksandar Nikolić: Ja bih rekao da je to radna akcija, posto se radi o volontiranju gomile amatera a ne o podugovaranju posla. Eto koliko smo bili ispred vremena ameri su iskovali ovaj izraz tek 2006. godine :-)
