Translation quality: rules for success

Contrary maybe to your experience, getting a good quality translation is not a Russian roulette game…. I put three bullets in the 6-bullet cylinder, I have a good 50/50 chance surviving pulling the trigger…. I did my due diligence when selecting my translator/translation agency, I can be reasonably certain of the successful outcome….


Maybe. But leaving things to chance does not bode well for your final satisfaction. In fact, empirical data show that the editing time spent on any translation does not increase/decrease in linear proportions with the quality (or lack thereof) of the job done.


My personal experience over the last 15 years taught me that compared with a good translation job, a mediocre one will drastically increase the time I spend proofreading/editing it, whatever the number of actual translation errors found in the document!


But why?


The mechanism is a simple one: as the proofreader/editor notices that translation errors are a bit too numerous for his/her own comfort, his/her attention cannot help but zeroing in on the possibility of further errors. His/her critique becomes unforgiving. Gradually, he/she rewrites larger and larger chunks of the copy. What might have be considered acceptable quality to start with becomes less and less acceptable. More “has” to be rewritten. Even on purely subjective grounds of perceived style improprieties.More about Translation Agencies UK


In quite the opposite way, an editor correcting a generally well-written and technically accurate translation will become less and less keen to superimpose his/her own indiosyncrasies on the translation job: “Mmmh, I wouldn’t have written it this way, but it’s correct”. Or in other terms, the editor tends to go by the rule “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.


Based on this, how can you avoid the pitfalls of translator selection?

Petualangan Besar Kamboja Colly dan Spear

Salah satu pengunjung lama dan favorit kami, Colly, mampir ke Thailand pada putaran terakhir perjalanan keliling dunianya – dan beberapa dari Anda akan ingat bahwa kami pernah bertemu sekali di Vegas pada putaran pertama perjalanannya saat saya meliput dua pertunjukan besar di Vegas. Dan pengunjung forum Casinomeister juga akan tahu bahwa kami membahas “Petualangan Hebat” di mana kami akan mengunjungi Poipet, Kamboja, rumah bagi enam (dan segera lebih) kasino besar yang melayani penduduk Thailand.

Saya membuat pengaturan untuk bertemu Colly di hotelnya, dan ketika kami berjalan keluar untuk minum kopi, saya bertemu dengan seorang teman – sebenarnya, teman yang telah saya rencanakan untuk mengajak kami ke Poipet, yang belum pernah saya kunjungi. dapat menghubungi selama lebih dari sebulan.

Dia siap setuju untuk mengatur mobil dan sopir, dan Petualangan Hebat dimulai.

Poipet adalah kota non-deskriptif di perbatasan di seberang Aranyapathet di provinsi Sa Kaew Thailand, empat jam dengan mobil dari Bangkok. Di masa lalu, kota ini dikenal terutama karena pasar perdagangannya yang besar – Toto SGP saat kami melewati Imigrasi, semua jenis barang dapat terlihat melintasi Kamboja, termasuk pakaian dan secara mengejutkan banyak produk segar – saya membayangkan bahwa sayuran akan berlimpah di sisi lain perbatasan tetapi jelas bahwa sebagian besar perdagangan adalah satu arah.

Pengunjung diharuskan memiliki visa – yang menurut Colly dan saya agak aneh karena dia membawa paspor EC dan saya paspor Amerika, yang biasanya memberikan akses gratis di sebagian besar negara – tetapi untungnya kami dapat mengatur visa pada saat kedatangan untuk 1000 baht (sekitar $22 AS) dan karena Colly tidak membawa fotonya, dia harus membayar tambahan 100 baht ($2,20) untuk foto yang tidak pernah diambil… dan jika Anda ingin mempercepat perjalanan Anda , izinkan salah satu pria Kamboja – atau “pemandu” – untuk mengurus semuanya untuk Anda dengan tip 100 baht – kami benar-benar dicap masuk …

DigiByte price is soaring DGB Minecraft Memes, Crypto Gambling and Citibank

Digibyte Price

This morning it became apparent that the cryptocoin called DigiByte ($DGB) was set to skyrocket in price. In the past 24 hours, the price of the coin went up a cool 43%, and beat its own previous top price (from May 21st) – once, and hasn’t looked back since. But why – why has DigiByte suddenly turned into the third most traded coin on the market overnight? We’ve got a few answers.


  1. Minecraft Integration

There’s some confusion when it comes to this particular point, but the end result is the same – DigiByte will indeed have their own Minecraft server soon. To be super clear, this does not mean that Mojang nor Microsoft are affiliated with DigiByte, nor the other way around. This has nothing to do – nothing directly, anyway – to do with the release of the Minecraft Marketplace this week, the Discovery Update 1.1, or Minecraft Coins.

The Minecraft DigiByte server will be housed at Mine That Digi and it’ll be launched on the 10th of June, 2017. That’ll coincide with the event taking place on the 9th with Citi. This is just one part of the puzzle.

The reason this Minecraft announcement has caught on in the crypto-hype market is its perfect timing with the two events mentioned above. Minecraft Marketplace with Minecraft Coins launched this week on Bedrock Platforms, and DigiByte (official) is going to make a presentation at a Citi event.

UPDATE: Just for kicks we’ve also reached out the the Minecraft team at Microsoft to ask if any DigiByte business was coming to Minecraft in the near future. They said that this was “the first they’d heard of it”. So that’ll be a final nail in the coffin of that particular angle.

Sometimes UFA Women Do Have an Advantage

PokerPages has instituted a new discussion forum for women poker players. It looks as it’s going to be a rich source for discussion and a rich source of article topic ideas for me.

One of the first threads was started by PokerVeteran, an internet poker troll. He basically proclaimed that women belong in the bedroom, not the cardroom.

Of course, as you might expect, a number of posters felt the need to tell him how wrong he was. A couple of them were men. Randy made a very polite post pointing out that PokerVeteran never posted anything with any poker content and calling him an a-hole.

My boss, Mark, made a post claiming, among other things, that women don’t have an advantage at the poker table.

It was Marks post that inspired this column. I think he’s wrong. I think women do have an advantage at the UFA poker table. It’s a situational advantage. It’s not an unfair advantage. And, not all women exploit the advantage. But, they do have an advantage.

Our troll, PokerVeteran, and Randy, our gentlemen, are examples of the kinds of opponents that often unwittingly give women an advantage.

Different players will react to situations in different ways.

Mr. Macho

He doesn’t think women belong at the table, and he’s aggressive about it.

Most men who think of poker in terms of a man’s game will think of it as a game of controlled aggression. But, a guy who gets verbally aggressive about not wanting women at the table is a guy who isn’t really strong on the control part. He’s likely to become hyper-aggressive, almost maniacal, when competing against a woman for the pot.

A woman who realizes that can exploit it.

Generally, the Mr. Macho kind of guy will not react well to an …

Reno has seen has not seen the numbers that were expected for the bigger buy-in events, but since the introduction of some new events with smaller buy-ins they seem to have found the larger crowd of players again.

The Ryder Cup

Golf’s Ryder Cup took place last month, an event that pitted the best in the world from Europe and America over four days of unique competition. The European team, although underdogs at the off, were well-deserved winners. Actually, they thrashed the Americans. And to hear the Europeans talk about it, I was reminded that the golf and poker worlds are not so dissimilar.

The unique thing about the Ryder Cup is how it transforms a sport for individuals into a team sport. Players who have spent their careers competing for themselves alone are suddenly put into situations in which they have to rely on and perform for teammates rather than themselves. And with the European golfers winning four out of the last five Ryder Cups despite being outclassed on paper, these results have shown that the ability to perform as an individual does not necessarily transfer over to team play.

What if a “poker” Ryder Cup was organized? Would European team spirit be enough to overcome a perceived American advantage in individual skills? I’d like to bet on it, but first there needs to be a format created to transform poker into a team game rather than an individual one. I have an idea, using golf’s Ryder Cup as a model, whereby players compete over three days in three disciplines — Fourballs, Foursomes, and Singles. Here’s a poker equivalent of these disciplines:

In golf Fourballs, players play in groups of four, two from each team. Although each player plays his own ball, only a team’s best score counts on each hole. A poker equivalent of this would be to pit two from each team against each other in two head-up matches — playing the same cards! While Player A on one team played Player B from another team, the other …

Vegas Judi Slot Online Casinos Head to the Far East

It seems that Las Vegas casino operators are looking for customers beyond the borders of the Silver State yet again. First it was MGM/Mirage acquiring an online casino license from the Isle of Man. Now five Vegas gaming companies are looking at setting up shop in the former Portuguese colony of Macau.

The opportunity arose when casino tycoon Dr. Stanley Ho’s forty-year gambling monopoly in the territory came to an end in 2001. Three casino licenses are now available and there are 20 companies from around the globe bidding for the 25-year licenses.

Macau became a Special Administrative Region of China in 1999, and has a fair amount of autonomy over internal affairs. Like Hong Kong, Macau isn’t subject to China’s economic policies; capitalism is alive and well in the territory and casinos are a multi-billion dollar business.

U.K.-based Aspinalls is one of the familiar names in the hunt for a license, but Vegas companies are leading the charge. MGM/Mirage Macau, Asian American Entertainment Corp., Lucky 9 Casino Corp., Wynn Resorts Ltd., and MP Entertainment (a Park Place Entertainment / Mandalay Resort Group joint venture) all have their names on the list of potential candidates.

That doesn’t mean they’re going to get in, however. Ho’s STDM group is expected to get one of the licenses and MGM/Mirage will likely get the second, leaving only the third up for grabs. MGM is reported to have been willing to spend US$2 billion to operate casinos in the territory, and it will be hard for the people in charge to ignore those kinds of numbers.

Two-thirds of Macau’s annual revenue from a 35-percent betting tax, and these new ventures stand to substantially increase that amount. They will also attract more tourist dollars and international Togel Hongkong corporations to the region if the government …
