With the rapid development of the translation industry, many translation agencies develop some on-line platform to deal with the translation projects, it is called post-editing.
It means that they run the source content through their translation memory and machine translation. Some of the strings are all machine translation and need essentially a rewrite whereas others are nearly matches of their memory and need only a light edit.
When you do the editing, there is contexual information in the source so you can see, if it reads “draft 0” it is mostly machine translation whereas if it reads “draft 85%” it is mostly correct.
For the first round of translation, because most of them are did by machine, so it requires the native translators to check the spellings, grammar, style, terminology errors to guarantee the quality, it is posted on platform, so it is called post-editing.
CCJK is a very famous translation company based in China and Hongkong, our linguists are native Chinese people who are very skilled in Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese, so our customer- one of famous translation agency in USA finds us, they want to cooperate with us in Chinese languages.
On-line post-editing projects are very interesting and it is so different, it has some unique features:
1) For each project, the price is fixed and could not be negotiated.
2) For each project, You wouldn’t be agreeing to do a set amount of words and it isn’t something that a group of people undertake together.
3) If you wanted to do some of this project, you would log in and start working, within the platform.
4) You would do as much or as little as you wanted at any time until the project is finished. This is a one-pass project. So one person logs in and does post-editing and then they log out when they like.
5) Each translator works on their own and gets paid on their own via PayPal, without submitting the invoice when the job is finished.
