Non-Professional Translation Services

Crowd-Sourced Translation Services

Type 2 Trasnslate does not employ the used of crowd-sourced translation. Crowd-sourced translation services are generally considered as a translation service provided by a large group of non-expert translators and multilingual persons. This type of non-professional translation service provides a quick, cheap translation of large amounts of content. While there are many cons to this type of non-professional translation service, it is great for translation of large, bulk data, social media content, and content which needs only a gist understanding.

This type of translation service is not recommended for use in a professional environment. Drawbacks of a crowd-sourced translation include lack of control over large groups translating separate sections of text or a complete document, little to know confidentiality of proprietary or sensitive information, and ambiguity for content among multiple translators. Even professional translators can translate using different terminology. For this reason, it is recommended to use human translation by a dedicated professional translator instead of a group of linguists who simply have familiarity with a foreign language. When seeking professional translation services, conduct adequate research of how your translation project will be completed.

Machine Translation

Machine Translation generally employs the use of a large database of content which has already been translated in a similar context. Additionally, machine translation can include the use of dictionaries to quickly translate large volumes of content at little to no cost. The largest drawback from machine translations include the large-scale ambiguity of translated content. Most machine translation software relies on word-for-word definitions. As a result, this can produce an unnatural target translation which does not convey well in the reader’s native language.

This type of non-professional translation service is usually not recommended for professional use or public display. Machine translation is not a type of professional translation service since it cannot pick up the general nuances of most languages.

Computer Assisted Translation / Computer Aided Translation (CAT)

A process by which a human translator utilizes Translation Memory (TM) software to aid in the expedited delivery of a translation product. The translation memory software allows the translator to categorize specific types of translations by content-type. The software is then able to remember key word combinations, which will generate similar content for future translations.

Potential drawbacks of Computer Assisted Translation include inaccuracy of translated content if the human translator is not meticulous in proofreading and editing translation memory output. Other possible drawbacks of this non-professional translation include potential ambiguity of target-language content.

Importance of Professional Translation Services

Why are Professional Translation Services Important?

When seeking professional translation services and deciding on which type of translation method to use (human translation, crowd-sourced translation, machine translation, CAT translation, or a combination of all), keep in mind what type of content you need to have translated.

 

You will want to employ the use of machine translation if you need to quickly translate a large amount of content, which is not sensitive, proprietary or confidential in nature, and you have an extremely limited budget; you may also wish to explore the pricing options of crowd-sourced translation services.

 

If you need a 100% accurate professional translation which is error free and/or your content for translation is of a confidential nature, a professional, human translator is most likely the best source for professional translation services.
