about : Works of Words 文 字 处 理

English-Chinese

TEXT | 文 本

Translate

Text in English or Chinese provided to be translated into Chinese or English, self-proofread but no guarantee on zero typo and omission or other minor errors. Proofreading by another party is necessary to avoid glaring mistakes if any. Review after translation is part of the task to produce a better-finished or near-perfect work ready for publication.

Rate$: please see text further down about : Rates

翻譯

将英文或中文原稿翻译成中文或英文,会自行校对但不能确保零失误或其他文字处理上的瑕疵,因此需要另一人来校对确定可刊登,即便译後复审的工作是翻译的其中一环,复审只是要力求完美,接近或达到可刊登水平,并不等于校对。

費用$:請見下文的about收費】

Transcreate

Usually applied in translating ad copy with the play of words to capture attention and stand out among the rest, especially in headline, tag line, slogan, and description to impress readers for lasting memory, where free play allows other than transliteration. Basically it works on the basis of translation, but transcreate or copy-write a bit where feasible that add value to ad copy. This work hovers between translation and copy-writing, never replace either one.

Rates: 10% to 30% on top of Translation Rates

Proofread

Check translated texts for typo, omission, mistakes, errors, consistency and any other editing necessary to polish the translated texts. Strictly proofreading does not edit or amend any sentence to rephrase, but usually do as a complimentary service if the text is fluent enough using most of the right words. Too much editing would involve copy-edit job. Usually don’t undertake 100% proofreading task but copy-editing when the translated text has more than 30% to be edited and polished or rephrased.

Rate$: 30% to 50% of Translation Rates

校对

逐字检查找错别字,遗漏的字,失误,错误,不协调以及其他需要修饰的部分。纯粹的校对就不润稿,不改句子或修辞,通常都是额外奉送的服务,前提是译本流畅通顺,都用对字。太多要修饰的词句就成了润稿,而不只是校对罢了。很少接百分百校对的工作,只要译本有超过百分之三十需要修饰改写的,就当润稿处理。

费用$:翻译费的30%50%

Review

An important process after translation for quality control to be error-free that general public can accept without the impression of poor or low quality. Usually done by another translator of same standard if not higher, or done by the translator who is qualified to review the works of other translators. Most often included as part of the job in translation like proofreading for typos and minor errors as a promise to deliver quality works, it could take as much time as initial translation itself, and must go through at least 3 times to be satisfied before delivering the work fit for publication.

Rates : 50% of Translation Rates

Creative | 创 意

Copy-Edit

Partial proofreading but mainly improving the language, tone, sentence structure, use of words, fluency etc for a translated or written text. Proofreading by another party is required and recommended even though review is part of the formality in the service. If there are more than 70% to be edited, or almost every sentence need some editing, then it would warrant Edit-Write—another higher level of editing skill at different rates and charges.

Rate$ : 50% to 80% of Translation Rates

潤稿

有部份校對的工作在內,但是主要是在修飾譯本或稿件的文字,語調,句子結構,用字,流暢度等方面的細節。雖然複審是此項服務不可或缺的一環,還是要建議需要另一人來校對以確保完全無誤。如果文本有超過70%需要潤飾和改善的,或者幾乎每一句都有修改的必要,就需要重新編寫而不只是潤稿了,那是另一个更高技能的文字工作,費用也高些。

費用$:翻譯費的50%80%

Edit-Write

Various texts are provided or could be obtained through research to write a fresh copy with all the relevant information captured in an appropriate tone and consistent style for the target readers or to meet other specific requirements. The rates will be higher slightly if it involves translation before the actual process of edit-writing depending on availability of information in each language concerned.

Rate$ : 150% to 180% of Translation Rates

编写

提供一些现成资料和內容,或者可上网查找收集需要的信息,然后重写一篇包含这些内容和信息的文章,用恰当的语调和一贯的文笔为心目中的读者群或其他特定的要求而写。如果在编写前需要翻译一些外文的内容,费用会高些,视中英两种语文现成可得的资料而定。

费用$:翻译费的150%180%

Copy-Write

Write from scratch to present the target product, service or other subject to achieve certain purpose such as to inform, to promote, to sell, to build reputation, to craft an image, to entertain, to attract readers, etc. Most often applied in advertisement copy and promotional materials or marketing literature. Information and details to be provided so as to present in text. Word counts are scanty but text is concise, well-crafted or even poetic and creative.

Rate$: above 200% of Translation rates, may be up to 500% or higher

撰稿

從無到有特別為產品,服務或某個對象而寫來達到某個特定的目的,比如說要通知,促銷,售賣,建立信譽,塑造形象,娛樂,吸引讀者等等。通常都用在廣告詞,促銷材料或行銷文宣當中,都會提供一些要出現在文本里的信息和細節,字數少而精簡扼要,巧思妙語,文采與創意兼而有之。

費用$:翻譯費的兩倍以上,可達到五倍,甚或更高

Co-write

Add contents onto what had been written to improve the various aspects of the article, or other forms of collaboration and division of tasks, which involve also copy-edit and edit-write, including review but exclude independent proofreading.

Rate$ : use Edit-Write rates as reference

合写

在现有的稿件和内容里加入其它內容让文章显得更全面,严谨,有文采,也面面俱到,或者是其它方面的合作与分工,免不了在必要时润稿和编写一些,包括复审的後续工作但不包括校对。

费用$:参考编写的费用

Write

Write with very little or no reference to any texts available but out of one’s mind and thoughts for certain purposes, publishers and readers. Usually requested by magazines and newspapers who need first-hand copy-righted articles to fill up their spaces to feed their readers with something new and interesting. Travel guides, travel-journal, travel-writing and travelogues are also getting popular among tour-related operators as a soft-selling form to draw well-heeled well-cultured readers-travellers who pay for quality vacation and exotic experiences.

Rate$ : to be advised and proposed

寫作

為某些特定目的,出版人和讀者群有感而發去寫,很少或完全不參考任何現有資料。通常都是雜誌社和報章需要這種有版權的第一手內容來填版位以饗讀者,保持新鮮感與可讀性。近年來旅遊指南,旅遊報導,旅遊文學和遊記專題這種柔性的促銷手法也很受旅遊業者們的歡迎,比較容易吸引到愛旅遊有文化的讀者旅人們的注意,這些人肯花錢去體驗異國風情和素質高的假期。

费用$:需要商議和提議

Brand-naming

Almost all foreign brands that sell and advertise for China market need a Chinese brand name. If not, all the established brands for the past 30 years will simply stick to its original name in alphabets. There is valid reason to do so and money worth spending. Chinese naming exercise considers several factors like number of strokes, pronunciation, tones, meaning, association with other words in one character or all the 2-5 characters combined, among other commercial considerations, we need to analyse the proposed names to view it from various aspects and let the best name stands out among the rest that present some strengths and benefits. The client will be fully informed of almost everything (not just linguistic) related to the names proposed (always have a few to consider) and make the best choice based on certain criteria and priority. It may take a week to do research, analyse, think and work on just one name, if inspiration strikes earlier, may be done in just one day. The stroke of ingenuity is a work of art based on some disciplines and with creative juices flowing in the blood.

Rates: Usually need at least 7 days, including research, fixed fee to quote with reference to rates of copywriting.

品牌命名

姓名学对中国人来说是一门学问,基本上要对汉字的每一个字都有深切的了解,组合起两个或三个字时要相得益彰,而不是一强两若或五行相克有缺之类的问题,或谐音变成笑话、粗话等等。品牌的命名除了字型好看、稳健、平衡之外,发音还得响亮,总体来说容易记、容易唸,令人印象深刻,又能点出产品的与众不同之处和卖点。如果没有一套审查表和工作流程,要同时照顾到这么多因素和方方面面而且还要到位并不容易。另外,品牌的注册商标也是个问题,不能重复或接近其他已经注册的商标,要尽量独特不重复,也没有抄袭之嫌。中文商标或产品名称的英文命名跟中文名称的命名工作流程类似,英文也有其独特之处,各有各的玩转玩法。

费用:至少一个星期的时间,包括查找研究,参考撰稿费用定额开价

SEO Writing

Content is King on internet, more so for online marketing, including SEO and SEM (Search Engine Marketing). Basically any SEO writer should be able to write well, like to write and enjoy writing, but this is not enough to be a good SEO writer, one should also be able to copywrite for ad and marketing purpose as a copywriter, and yet not enough still, the copywriter need to have good knowledge of SEO, keep up with ever-changing algorithms and practice a lot to be skillful with all the guidelines in mind as if they are second nature, and be a seasoned blogger as well. Besides, to be productive and have SEO quality in the writing, other than ready-made software tools to help check many parameters, SEO writer should have devised own checklist and work procedure to carry out the writing, review and counter check own work not to miss one of the important steps and parts and overlook something that could have optimised the engine’s search. Just like content writing and copywriting, practice makes perfect. Built upon copywriting and upon creative writing as the foundation, SEO writing is a level of writing skill higher than copywriting in the business world. There are very few skilful SEO writer on market now in any country, salary, fees, rates are high, at least 20% higher than rates for copywriting and copywriter.

SEO Edit

SEO writing is a time-consuming task to start writing from scratch with keyword and phrases in mind then review and edit to have a fair share of these keywords and phrases spread over the contents from beginning to the end, among many other guidelines to watch. SEO Edit saves the task of copywriting and writing anew but edit readily-written text to be SEO friendly (provided they are good contents already well written), by inserting some keywords and phrases at the right place, change the title and headlines, headings, paragraphing, formatting, key descriptions among many other SEO-relevant elements to optimise and avoid some pitfalls on a page, both readable and hidden to connect the contents better with search engine and earn higher page rank position to be found and listed in the first few pages over time, with consistent effort of other tasks other than relying on content alone, even though content is one of the major factors in page ranking. The time and energy spent here will be lesser than SEO writing, but rates will be about the same as copywriting, the job is both technical and creative, human-like and robotic, with an aim to optimise the search engine with quality contents and sell.

Rates:TBD

Content Writing

Mainly for web content purpose, may also be used for prints. No SEO consideration or extra process to tune up the keywords and phrases to be SEO friendly unless otherwise requested to be done as SEO Writing that will cost more for more time and effort involved. However, content writing will attempt to be informative, unique and compelling to be SEO friendly and favourable that attract readers to read and gain something that meet the eyes.

Article Contribution

Video-Audio | 视 听

Video-Audio Transcribe Translate

Translate audio file in spoken English or Chinese into Chinese or English in writing, for subtitling or voice-over recording purpose. Such file may be normal or tough, hence 2 sets of rates. Normal if speed, clarity, word and tongue of the speech among other factors are common enough to be understood by listening once or twice to translate in full with accuracy, bearable with occasional tough nuts to crack. Tough when most of the speech throughout the audio file cannot be ascertained and translated in full by listening once or twice but to listen very carefully to decipher certain words and pronunciation to make sense out of it, usually need to repeat the same sentence more than 5 times up to 10 times to clear the stumbling block in the process of transcribing.

Rates : Normal Transcription — US$5-7 per audio minute; Tough Transcription — US$7-10 per audio minute.

视听口述抄录翻译

翻译英语或华语发音的口述音档抄录为中文或英文的话稿,也就牵涉到两种翻译,一个是口译,另一个是笔译,差别是比起临场口译,笔译有时间去想和避免错译,误译或不理想不道地的翻译,费用也比口译低得多,但也高过一般的文件笔译。音档难度可分为正常或高难两种,费用也有别。正常的发音在说话的速度,清晰度,用字和口音等各方面都可以听一两遍就抄译得完整到位,偶尔遇到一两次高难度和难解的部分也不妨碍整个音档的正常性和抄译流程。高难的音档裡充满多数人都听不懂的字句如当地俚语或专业术语,或发音含糊,或不知所云,无法听一两遍就能确定要怎么翻译,而多数时候的同一句话必须集中注意力很仔细地听上五遍到十遍才能搞清楚是在说些甚么,才能完整地抄译下来,才能继续听和翻下一句,整个过程很花时间精力,也很折腾译者的耐性。只要预算够的,都会发出去给熟练的接案译者去做,总之就是件苦差事,很少人要自己去伤脑筋,也不是任何译者都能胜任有把握。

费用:正常音档 – 音档每分钟57美元;高难音档 音档每分钟710美元。
