Quality control of human and machine technical translation
Presenter: Aaron Hebenstreit
As the standards of machine translation develop rapidly, translators, revisers, and other quality control professionals must carefully check technical translations for accuracy. Certain aspects and features should be noticed in order to produce a product that can stand up to the scrutiny of experts in the field, such as attorneys, scientists, and inventors. The speaker will explore different error types and classifications when reviewing technical texts translated by humans, computers, and combinations of the two. Presented in English with Chinese examples.
Aaron Hebenstreit, CT is ATA-certified (Chinese>English) and has worked as a translator and reviser for the World Intellectual Property Organization, a UN agency, and translates and interprets for private- and public-sector clients. He is also an ATA certification exam grader and former member of the board of the NYCT and advises graduate students in translation at NYU. Aaron completed his studies in mechanical engineering, foreign language, and translation and interpretation and he is an advocate of technological tools for linguists.Q&A will follow the presentation.
