Title: Long Distance Revisions in Drafting and Post-editing
Author: Carl, Michael; Kay, Martin; Jensen, Kristian T. H.
Abstract: This paper investigates properties of translation processes, as observed in the translation behaviour of student and professional translators. The translation process can be divided into a gisting, drafting and post-editing phase. We find that student translators have longer gisting phases whereas professional translators have longer post-editing phases. Long-distance revisions, which would typically be expected during post-editing, occur to the same extent during drafting as during post-editing. Further, both groups of translators seem to face the same translation problems. We suggest how those findings might be taken into account in the design of computer assisted translation tools.
