Mind Works of Words  翻译的乐趣

Bi-lingual translation by SohoProThis blog is created to display various types of text translated from English to Chinese for interested parties to browse and assess my works as samples, and for parties interested in both languages or the contents.


I am translating eBooks on daily basis as a serious money-making business. I enjoy translation as a hobby and learn something new each time.


Some of the samples shown here are contents that intrigue me to explore further with terms and terminology that draw a blank in most of the minds. Most of them are encountered and found in Wikipedia, and of course, I am translating Wikipedia articles in English that are not fully translated into Chinese yet.A great many texts I opt to tackle voluntarily are quite challenging and tough, in the end rewarded with the sense of accomplishment.


Of course, no one is all-rounder, there are still many types of texts that I am neither confident nor interested in translating, hence they will not appear in this blog, especially engineering, in which I do not have any background at all. All professional and technical contents are boring to the majority but general articles are easy to read, interesting enough, therefore a breeze to translate.


Human translation brainworks by SohoPro

Brain Works 脑力手工

I am using translation software to aid or speed up the translation process but use them for reference only, it had never replaced the brain and its judgment for the best words to use and the best way to express in another language that sound local and fluent to the native readers. Quite often, the translation software produces junks that confuse instead of confirming the appropriate terms and phrases to translate, and I can only take a glance and restructure the whole sentence in mind to retype a new paragraph without using any of the software version. And most of the time I have to cross reference a few dictionaries to confirm which term in Chinese can be understood by all, other than doing some research online for nouns not available in any dictionary, especially ethnic and culture related contents. I was fooled by machine translation once for taking what it churned out for granted and discovered the mistakes during proofreading and copy-editing, I ended up spending more time and energy in fine-tuning or fire-fighting with minor but glaring flaws that will debase professionalism and quality of the entire translated document. From then onwards I can never trust machine translation, becasue the efficiency gained is not worth the quality lost that cost much more than dollars and cents. Overall the software helps as a quick reference only, at most 10% in my translation process, perhaps more for others or for other simpler texts and sentences.


In essence, machine yields efficiency, but no craftmanship. Hand-crafted arts with overall quality and beauty cannot be performed by machine so far, and in foreseeable near future.
