The proper place of professionals (and non-professionals and machines) in web translation

Ignacio Garcia

Resum

The amount of work available to the professional translator on the web appears to be shrinking, due to the pincer effect of both machine translation and "crowdsourcing". To maintain its professional status, the translator must choose between specialising in a highly regulated area and becoming a language quality assurance expert.

Paraules clau

machine translation, crowdsourcing, professional translation, web-aided translation, translation memory.
