E>J translation, localisation and fit of UI word strings for NEC smartPhone, etc
The task: translation and spatial fit of 240 word strings into 3400 chars for the Japanese interface of 2 new NEC(Aust) developed GUIs (for smartPhone, tablet, DTP plusware), in 22 hours over 2 weeks of intermittent interaction with Client. Approach used: * Double checking intended purpose, consistency and logic of source strings received against sequence of GUI screens where they were to appear. * Disambiguation, editing of source strings (drafted by non native speakers of target lang. and truncated to fit) * Alerting PM of potential misunderstandings that might arise from literal translation of some source lang. prompts and headers; proposing functional Japanese equivalents that would avoid this problem. * Localising target strings by avoiding literal translation of source strings wherever operating procedure made this superfluous, since Japanese instructions rely on functional context wherever available, keeping scripted text to minimum -- a very real need, given screen size constraints. All translated strings produced cleared by Japanese client's specialist engineers.
positive NECJ via NECA: Within a short space of 2 weeks period Marc have translated all highly technical English phrases of NEC smart phone GUI text to Japanese language without any error. It was a truly amazing achievement! In short, I strongly recommend Marc.

Source text - Japanese これまで人類は、必要とするエネルギーの大部分を化石燃料に依存し、CO2を大量に排出してきました。
Translation - English Mankind has so far relied on fossil fuels for most of its energy needs, and has by now emitted a large volume of CO2 in the process.
By the time global warming has become plainly obvious, the climate change observed in recent years will have worsened, and the CO2 discharged come to be regarded almost unquestionably as the prominent cause of this green house effect.
How CO2 emissions can be suppressed is now a problem of world-scale importance.
This energy problem cannot be solved solely through technological means.
Socio-economic factors too have a lot to do with that outcome.
And so it has become imperative to establish "Low Oxygen-based Energy Science" as an interdisciplinary and composite field of research where the vantage points of social scientists and the humanities are included for consideration together with scientific and engineering inputs.
Since fiscal year 2008, the Energy Scientific Research Department, the Energy Science and Engineering Laboratory, the Engineering Research Lab and Major Course into Nucleonics, and the Nuclear Reactor Testing Center have been jointly promoting the Global Centre of Excellence Program entitled: "For a CO2 Emission-free Energy Science Base for the Global Warming Age".
The aim of this Program is to: form an international educational research base to prepare educators, researchers, and policymakers with the capacity to create and put in place technologies and energy policy proposals conducive to the implementation of scenarios whereby: by 2100, the energy systems used will no longer depend on fossil fuels and will be 100% CO2 emissions-free.
The "GCOE Education Unit" which performs the central education function of this Program pursues this objective through the interrelation of policy measure development research and research focusing on State-of-the-Art technologies.
The Scenario-based Policy Measures Development Research Group conceives zero CO2 emissions technology development road maps and policy measures to address 'zero CO2 emissions' scenarios. It also carries out analyses from the angles of the human values and behaviors of the societies concerned.
These activity programs provided during the formal education stage contribute significantly to personnel training. These outcomes are derived most particularly from the cluster of research fields focused on State-of-the-Art technologies, and reflect the way we promote education and research in conjunction.
By defining, at the "education through research" stage, a cluster of research fields focusing on State-of-the Art technologies, we drive the Scenario-based Policy Measures Development Group to develop a road map to bring together the research teams working in the fields of: energy-oriented societies, the economy, solar energy, biomass, and advanced nuclear powered energy research, and in this way facilitate their cooperation.
By attracting students to this Cluster we form the human resources that will become the prime drivers of future research.
For education in the core subjects of the Global COE, we have set up the "Energy Science GCOE Education Unit" in which are trained hand-picked postgraduate students in the last term of their doctorates.
The students who join this Unit participate in the Scenario-based Policy Measures Development Group and the State-of-the-Art technology-oriented Research Cluster which give them an intimately well versed and hands-on field education. The basic education philosophy of this Unit is to instill in its students the following skills or advantages:
① whether they come from a human- or natural- sciences background, in addition to their deep understanding of and a high attainment record in their respective fields, a capacity to comprehend and understand one another's points and positions and cooperate productively in joint operations;
② the autonomy to put together an ad hoc research group to tackle the problems at hand and to bring that research to completion in cooperation with other researchers;
③ a research ability of world standard, an international outlook and a capacity to communicate with colleagues from any country;
④ the prospects to contribute to the energy and environmental solutions upon which the survival of the human race depends.

Japanese to English: vacuum casting General field: Tech/Engineering Detailed field: Engineering: Industrial
Source text - Japanese （参照：http://www.plamerry.co.jp/shinku/index.html)
Translation - English (Ref: http://www.plamerry.co.jp/shinku/index.html)
Vacuum casting is an industrial process used to make copies of plastic moldings under vacuum, using molds made of silicone rubber instead of metal.
Silicone molds can greatly reduce initial costs. Since their rated service life is around 20 molding cycles however, their use is, but for a few exceptions, overwhelmingly confined to industrial plastic product prototyping.
