Technical Translators: «Simplifying technical docs: ¿impressing or expressing?»
(16 hours)- How many times do we find technical procedures written in a way we believe could have been written in a much more reader/translator-friendly? Complex structures? Ambiguous message? It could be simpler than that, right? Yes. So, if you are looking forward to making it more understandable and reader-friendly, this is the training you should take
– How can we simplify an instruction/procedure without modifying the message? In Spanish, can we follow the principles of STE?
– In a procedures manual we can get rid of unnecessary textual elements. How? Can I just decide to leave out what I believe is no longer necessary? How do I explain that to my client?
– Procedures written in English vs. procedures written in Spanish (practice).
– Translating complex procedures (practice).
