Un bon servent, un mal mestre. Opinions dels traductors finlandesos sobre les tecnologies de la traducció



Aquest article mostra els resultats d'una enquesta que mesura les opinions dels traductors professionals finlandesos (N=450) quant a les tecnologies de la traducció. El treball també presenta una eina que pot utilitzar-se per estudiar la percepció d'aquests canvis, el model NMEP (Nous Models Educatius o Paradigmes). Els principals resultats indiquen que els traductors professionals perceben les tecnologies de la traducció com una eina eficient que, a la pràctica, ha canviat l’exercici de la traducció, però que no fomenta la creativitat. Els traductors empresarials semblen tenir-ne una percepció més positiva que altres enquestats (traductors literaris o audiovisuals). Pel que fa al mètode, els resultats indiquen que el model NMEP és un mètode útil per analitzar les opinions que generen les tecnologies de la traducció.
