Thank you for watching and I'll see you on my full course. 3. Introduction to Upwork: introduction to up. Let me teach you a few of the main benefits off up. Oh, for translators, endless amount of jobs compared to all my job sites such as Fiverr, freelancer, translators, carfare, pros and others, I found up work to be the one with the highest amount of jobs. Almost no competition. The volume of competitors you may encounter on our folk as of the time I'm writing. This is significantly lower than the other sites, such as the ones I mentioned build a long term client relationships. Majority of the clients are couple on companies and associations, which means higher chance for building long term relationships. Design and simplicity. Oppose design was meant professionally, have been appealing, look to it and, most importantly, super reserve friendly and easy for showcasing your skills and experience the fervor aspect I could mention, However, I believe that when you will enter a book to you will find out by ourselves how much benefits are. Bog has too often for what reason a poke is known as the top freelancing website couple formerly Oh, this can, in essence, is a global freelancing platform. Will businesses or individuals connect to conduct business is in 2015 0 disk and villains were rebranded as up. It is said that the book has 12 million registered freelancers. Five million registered explains. Three million jobs are posted annually worth a total off $1 billion making it the largest freelancing marketplace in the world. So why should you really learn about Apple? Other transition courses on Lee Teach about signing up on Translators Cafe for pros, sites that are full of beginners and expert translators. So the competition is hard. Also, 90% of posted jobs they're required degree or at least three years off transition experience. Now it's true that on a poke, clients pay less and the rates aren't as high as on translators, confession or probes. But as a beginner in translation, you have much higher chances together, more jobs in experience under your belt on couple than on other sites. Later, when you have enough work history and self confident in your translation skills, you shall differently. Try your luck on those sites to not to mention it would be easier to create a successful CV with all the experience and work proof you got from up in the next lessons. We will learn mainly on translation, and later we will come back to a book and know how to correctly use. Thank you for watching. We'll see you in the next lecture. 4. Translation Terms & Helpful Sites: basic transition terms. Let's look on a few basic terms that any translator must know. So some target languages in translation the source language SL, in short, is the language being transited from when the target language TL, in short, is the language being translated to machine transition, sometimes referred to by the observation. Empty is the use of softer to translate text for speech from one language to another. And well known example of this is you been translated for Microsoft Transit language, a language for defines the source language for translation and turn it tax transition tools . Signs for text format. This formatting include standard commands such as bond fund, side bold or underlined text, special text color. The formatting commands are referred to as text and one place correctly. They decide how the translated text would look like in defining informant. Consider below an example on how the tax you'll find tax when translating on your transition to localization, the translation and culture Adoption websites software Absent games It's more than a simple transition, since the content has to be adopted to the local culture context and the local mark. Usually you will find the warm localization for ABS translating jobs, and it basically means the decline doesn't want you to translate water war, but also don't changes if needed in order to send a text to the local Where speaks proofing proofreading in our case, is the reading off a an attorney copy off a translation to find and correct production, caroms off text or form. Ordinarily, a client will ask former translator like you to translate his documents, and soon after receiving your translation, it will then give it to approve it to make sure you didn't leave any errors. Off text interpretation. The interpreter converts own speech in a source. Language in tow, all speech in a targeted listening to a speaker and interpreting in real time when the speaker pauses after completing one or two sentences. Transcription converting speech into reading. Paul Elektronik text document. Transcriber sometimes referred to a subtitle. ER listens to human speech and writing there. Later, he exports that to an SF 85 otherwise known in summary subtitle, which is the type of file you end to videos. Full Subtitle.

Helpful size for accurate translation reversal context. The site provide translations in context, with real life examples for millions of towards an expression supported size languages are listed below. Do you find yourself stuck on a word you don't know how to translate? This side is very helpful, and you should give it a try.

Go to ask the transition question and publish a question we got in any word you work. You should get an answer from professional after 24 hours or less as always. Thank you for watching and I will see you on my next lecture 5. CAT Tools - All You Need to Know: cattle's only need to know. So what is a cattle computer? Assisted transition tools. Eight translators and making translations faster and easier. How can cattles exactly help translation memories? Cattles allow translators to reuse transition memories from past translations of previous jobs. They didn't. This was update them while they translate, which is crucial for proof of your translation production. So when the same segments or terms appear later in the document, it did not mean to read, type or cut. Of course, you're building the transition memory as you work, so the next document like this one will have a better free translation arrangement of the text Cattles separate and arrange section of the text separately for the translator's perfect count. Warms Transit does need to know how to analyze the work so they can charge fair prices for different tests off. New Transition doesn't document revision and Central. Fortunately, most candles will count word segments and unit. That way, you could price the desk by the Monday ports for fun. What is the best cancel for translation? In 2013 Rose had conducted a survey about the best cattles in the market. The survey was conducted with more than 3000 professional translators who had been working as full timers for more than five years. So as you can see the large number of cattle to market when the most popular ones are the adrenals ward fast and sometimes you will be confused about which one to use. But there is no single perfect option. Your decision will be based on many factors, such as gradient features you're looking for and size of your transition projects in this course, though, but those who doesn't have the budget for expensive cattles I will show what is the best option out. Great free Cantel for you to use is called Maker, which is also the one I'm made. Scat is a free and open source online cat. It's free for trans Asian companies, translators and enterprise business. Maybe go fill us make that is and will be free and open. Source. The advances in technology should be shared with anyone who can contribute to the progress all can benefit from It made cut aims at creating an open platform that effectively overcomes the limits of translational today and helps to correct the language barriers. When I started my transition journey. I didn't know which cattle to use. And if a well made free cattle even exists. However, after several weeks of searching, had found this professional, completely free cattle that were expended. Lee and I highly suggest you used to at least doing your starting period. Thank you for listening, and I will see you in the next election. 6. CAT Tool Utilization Guide: way. 7. OCR - Convert PDF to Word: Let's learn about OCR and how to convert. Pdf to work.

OCR technology is used to convert any kind of images containing written, text typed, hand written or printed into an eligible text file. Video files are not irritable files. If we can't edit the file, we can't translate it, so we need to convert them into a former we can edit and modify. This conversion process can be done with OCR Ozio Softer alos BDF files to be converted into Microsoft Word Files for transition. In that case, how does images or PDF translation effects of payment?

Proofreading Translation For Better Accuracy: English or the correct software while walking you correct and fix text as much as you can. But mistakes always heaven, and you want to be 100% sure everything is accurate and professional. After all, we are humans, and we often make mistakes. But perfection is what our plans to spend for us. That's what other correct or spellcheck software comes in. Unfortunately, I currently only know a well made somewhere that under the English, so we feel planning to the level of file in English to your client. He was a great free software for it. Gravelly ramel, a Canadian to find most spelling and grammar errors and suggested corrections and improvements to your English texts. It also has a very useful little form extension that can be used while using YouTube studio for editing. Subtitles in English, all while using Google. Translate for any unknown words encounter. I want to make it feel that I decided to talk about this suffering only because I found it helpful and simple to use, and definitely not because any payments off it's a free platform I'm using and wanted to share my personal knowledge about, I think the free no cost service is excellent and you should definitely give it to try, even if you don't plan on using it for war. No, let's say you have an English follow you wish to check. It is how we can do that. Go to Google and right family from extension that simply had Gremillion to Google from. Let me show you how it works. If I write, let's go together with spelling errors, quickly identified them and suggest ways to fix it. You can also double click any word and get synonyms off. Other words for replacement. No. In Egypt Studio, it can give you corrections and assist you with the English. Now let's look on the extension intel. Hell, you have three options.

We will be active, give or not give you suggestions for synonyms and similar words or option for other correction of text. Now, if you have an English file and want to check it, go impressed your document. Let's I want to upload some titles and 74 Go here. Impressed, Upload, fight.

Then don't have you and uncheck I'd extensions. - That's how it generally look, and you even have the option to check old files. I currently only used the from extension, but there are even windows and office extensions if you use it more often. Oh, if you're dealing with English on a daily basis, manually proofreading text in order to make sure your final version is clear off. Mistakes and errors will teach you the secrets of Perfect. Once you have finished your translation or transcription, is your work done? Not at all. You still need to proof in your work. Here are three reasons why to replicate typos, arrows off grammar and punctuation, etcetera to make sure that you're finished, translation or inscription reads well, sounds clear and looks professional in return. And finally, to make sure that nothing is in your translation or transcription that wasn't in the source text on the one hand, and that nothing is missing, either. Some of you may say or think that simply being careful what writing or anything. The work is enough, and sometimes it is, however, by myself used to do that and hearing them. My clients found some steaks, which led to wrong assumptions that my work was simply Google translated all that. I don't really know the languages, I said. So I started proofreading myself more. And thanks to that, such cases rarely happens. There are three methods off general proofreading you can do and should. Comparing the original and the new birth back. Translation and or re translation. Reading and proofreading your new version, comparing the original and the new birds the game by comparing your translation. All transcription with original text or audio. You can work sentence by sentence or phrase by phrase, whichever is easier. Go through the text, carefully lining up the new version and the original as you compare. Also, double check, tricky places, tricky terms and spots. You weren't 100% happy for sure about on your initial path through the original, for example, it could be worse that fit the original text or audio, but doesn't sound fluent invisible enough on your new version, you can feel free to ask a friend or someone you know who has a good language skills regarding held the text sounds to him and what he thinks. You can even ask someone else you know who work in subtitling or translation and tell him to proof in your file. And in exchange you will profit his next future work if you're still stuck or unsure. A site called Prose has a network called kudos that provides a framework for translators and others to assist each other translations or explanations of terms and short phrases. I strongly advise to make an account there and try asking questions when wishing to received professional help. For those of you who doesn't know, prose is the terms, this insight that experts in all the languages out there use forgetting transition jobs in their home page. There is a window for questions about such tricky terms or symptoms said that people sent an answer in order to help each other out. Another proofreading option is back. Translation. Back Translation is another method of compelling original, and Your Newberry. It simply means taking the translation or description with different language subtitles and then reaches lading in back into the source language without first looking at the original . Compare the original in the back translated versions. Obviously, there will be differences, but they should be minor and subtle, not major. Just so you know, some professional transition agencies use back translation to double check the translators and even proofreaders work. They know that profiting the only work guarantees better results for the customs. You should do the same. And now let's look on to online platforms for comparing text dif checkers and copy leaks. As you can see, I simply Googled dif checker, and now I will, until their website. There are two options to enter. Text one for original and one for new version. Let me add a simple text and show you how it works. All right, let's delayed some letters and change the text a little so that I can show you. As you can see the blood from highlights and counts the differences, you compress the green or red marks for jumping into each one of them, or simply scroll down to find it. Now let's have a look on companies. Instead of going to the home page, go to compare documents similar to Def Checker. There are two options to enter the text. One for original in one for new version. And again, let's make some changes and see how it goes. - One of the cool things here is that you can see the percenters of how many differences or matches it has found. By removing identical, you can see the percentage of your not similar text, then easily find the differences on profit your text if needed. Re translation. Re translation is another laborious way to proofing. Process is simple, but that's so ideal. You just read. Translate the original text him Compared to translation. Re translation is very useful for tricky spots and can be illuminating, but it nonetheless is a real duplicate flavor. As such, it's to be avoided unless necessary. You already did the walk once. Why do it twice for the same pay reading and proofreading your new version. Next, make sure your translation or transcription is a good text on itself. Read on your version from start to finish. Does it sound career and professional except, if not, do the level style tone and diction match those of the original? Make sure that they do. Obviously you should proof, read The new version is in your best profaning skills. Look for spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, formatting numbers, etcetera, anything that might be wrong. No runners spelling and grammar checker software. Over your tapes, you feel profiting English, for example, you can use Graham early. What is my proof? Reading skills aren't good enough. Here are two tips. One. You can team up with another translator. Proofreading skills can be trusted. Or you can pay another transgender to prove video work for you. Sites like Find her or a freelance. So awful. Not everyone like going over the finished work again, so you can definitely try to find an expert proof, either. For me, if you truly want to be a professional translator or transcriber, never simply run your spell and grammar checker and hope it catches everything. It can't and it won't. These three basic ways of profiting will help you to deliver translation for subtitling projects that are true to the original and truly child. No, and we're finally done. It was long, but it's a necessary process for all of you who wants to be a true professionals at their work. Thanks for watching and waiting on the next lecture 10. Preparation Before Profile Creation: before I demonstrate the proper way of creating your profile, we should prepare beforehand some complex parts that will be necessary to be field late title and overview portfolios and specialized profiles. Since these parts for the main body of your profile on the first thing your flight seized creating requires creativity, client center thinking, professional winding experience and a lot of time and effort to truly feel comfortable with real for filer find appearance. However. Fortunately for you, this lecture Ripple vied with pre made templates for your overview and specialized profile over as well. Show you how to edit and so them till specific, which bears the time to. There are many different ways to write catchy title and even though, in my opinion, the title reason quite a crucial aspect of the profile. Here are a couple of ideas to help being the draft and original and meaningful title that captured your patients specializations and expertise. But avoid general descriptions such as hard walking forward I a book. Pretty simple. Create the focus title that describes of expertise been indicates the type of projects to help readers understand what you do but keep it short. They're dealing for tattle is 10 words or less businesses. The more precisely convenio title all the services you off, the more likely it is to catch the attention of business in the medial particular expertise . And now you're over. Here is a quick look at your future Bovary words with underlined show where any should be made to suit your overview to your specific language. Pairs At the start, I wanted to write Nice to meet you in your target language. So if you're translating to Spanish, for example, right near Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you in Spanish. Below that, you should end your name and your target levels at the bottom removed. And don't use beliefs ever. Here's part until you gain experience feedbacks from clients and up. You can find the overview template, that lecture resource and now portfolios. Your portfolios can be effectively used. Hair. Let your past and present for chips pieces you're particularly proud of which encourage clients to violence. Future goal should be to end portfolios from different fields. Showcase them for you Once you're quite more jobs, I highly suggest adding in portfolios to your profile in guest jobs in similar field might come by. Certain jobs will be easier to get tired for if you can show us the client your pants for on the field and impressive in my profile.
