What's the Crowdsourcing-driven Translation Community
1. The background of making AsiaNovel is because the manual translators are few and very slow in translating novels, so can’t wait to be an MTL is the solution.
2. Aslo MTL is continuously improving by becoming faster, cheaper, and more accurate. But it still has some way to go before it achieves parity with human translators.
3. To improve translation quality, Crowdsourcing-driven post-editing can begin.Anyone can report a translation error , others can fix it.
How It Works
1 . The community administrator will select some novels to join the crowdsourcing translation plan, these novels will be classified as POST-EDITING, and then the dislike icon will be displayed for each statement on the reading page of these novels, and anyone can click this icon to report a translation error
2. When the number of dislikes reaches five, a discussion with the original text and a translation will be posted in the Post Editing of the forum.
3. Anyone can translate and reply to the original text in the discussion. The administrator will select the best reply as the answer, and the answer will be synchronized to the novels in time.
