Fast forward the dumb English-Russian-English document translation | March 5, 2008

Fast forward the dumb English-Russian-English document translation

Unfortunately the translation of technical documents is my duty. Sometimes it’s fun, but mostly it’s mind-numbing work. So, as time passed by, I got more professional at it, eliminated boring stuff and left only fun part. Here’s how;

1. Scan A4 documents and make Abbyy FineReader recognize text
2. Make PROMPT software translate the whole Word document (it’s quite good)
3. Edit translation, and have fun laughing at dumb computer’s mistakes

There was this guy who lied to get a translation job. I mean many people just lie to get jobs nowadays (and then hide from their bosses). Anyway, I recommended him to use software. At least let the machine do the job, right?
