Reducing revision time
Brian Mossop, Canada
The workshop will look at revisers' various tasks from the point of view of time constraints. We will consider time-saving with both individual texts and overall workloads. The format will comprise brief theoretical presentations followed by text-based or scenario exercises focused on the quickest way to carry out a given revising or editing task.
The English exercise texts selected for this workshop will be of various types: human-generated translations without source texts, machine translation outputs, Translation Memory outputs, and wordings produced by non-native speakers.
