File preparation for translation service

File preparation for translation service

Tôi là một Freelancer, tôi cung cấp File preparation for translation service cho Translation/Localization Companies với hơn 10 năm kinh nghiệm.

File preparation for translation service sẽ giúp bạn tạo chuẩn bị source file (source file tức là 1 dạng file đầu vào cho một công việc nào đó) một cách hoàn hảo, phục vụ cho công việc dịch được chất lượng, không gặp khó khăn về mặt kỹ thuật.

Ngày nay, CAT Tools đang được sử dụng một cách phổ biến trong ngành Translation and Localization, thì việc Prepare Files sẽ vô cùng quan trọng.

Có 2 trường hợp source file preparation for Translation

1.Source Files for Document Translation

Documentation source formats for language translation can include different types of files such as Word, excel, PowerPoint, PDF, InDesign, Illustrator, FrameMaker, Photoshop, ect.

Trong trường hợp này, công việc prepare file nhằm mục đích chính là tạo ra source file tốt nhất để có thể sử dụng trên các phần mềm dịch CAT Tools.

Có một số File Types (Kiểu file) đặc biệt, chúng ta không thể import on CAT Tools Tools, mà phải chuyển đổi sang các định dạng khác, phù hợp với yêu cầu của CAT Tools. Điển hình như:

  • Indesign, phải export to .idml file
  • Framemaker, phải export to .mif file
  • Ect,…

Bước tiếp theo, tuy từng yêu cầu của Project Manager trong Translation/Localization Companies, tôi sẽ dùng một trong các phần mềm dịch CAT Tools as Trados, Memoq, Worfast, ect để tạo ra Source File có dạng Bilingual Files, để có thể sử dụng trên CAT Tools.

2.Source files for website translation

For website translation or localization, the same preparation tools (i.e. SDL Studio Trados) can be used with source files, but additional steps are needed in the pre- and final preparation steps. Based on the website programming language, website files should be prepared properly by externalizing tags such as HTML tags, C++, JavaScript or PHP internal Code.
