About the project:
The client has a series of game translation and proofreading test need to be evaluated on regular basis. The languages are including Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese Korean, Thai and Japanese. Every evaluation test will be performed in one hour.
The QA linguist needs to go through each test and fill out the evaluation forms. One is for translation, and the other one is for proofreading. The specific instructions for this evaluation job are listed below:
The QA linguist should mark with an (X) in front of the given statement that, in their profession opinion, best describes the quality of the translation he/she verified. For example:
The translation was excellent. The translator was highly-accurate and conveyed the meaning of the source document in a localised manner. Minimal amount of changes performed.
The translation was below-average. There were substantial amendments that needed to be performed in order to ensure the document will read more natural to a native speaker of the target language. In some cases there were also accuracy errors.
The QA linguist must highlight the main strengths and weaknesses of the translation he/she verified, and test translation strengths and weaknesses should be provided where applicable.
Finally, it is required to mark the translation the linguist verified from 1 to 10 (with 1 being “very poor” and 10 being “excellent”)

(1) We selected native QA linguists who have game knowledge and have years of experiences in language quality check.
(2) The linguists carefully read the instructions before perform the evaluation. Their listed strengths and weaknesses for each test specifically. Apart from this, our responsible QA linguist shared his suggestion and comments for weakness translation. It will do great help for the client and testers.
(3) Regarding proofreading evaluation, the working flow is much simple. The linguists only need to check if all errors have been found by testers and all revisions are necessary. Based on these criteria, the linguist will calculated the score for each proofreading tests on the given evaluation form.
