Looking for Arabic translators for participating in an academic study

Hello Translators!

This is Ahmed Magraalneel, a Master’s Candidate in Translation at Ain Shams University and Arabic Translator. I am conducting a research study on post-editing. Post-editing is the process by which a translator reviews a translation generated by a machine and then corrects it in order to achieve a good quality translation. Currently, I am looking for English-into-Arabic volunteer translators who can volunteer some of their time (2-3 hours) to participate in this study. The study aims at investigating to what extent the human factor represented in a translator’s experience influences the quality and productivity when post-editing machine-translated texts from English into Arabic. If you are a translator and interested in participating in this study, I would appreciate 3 minutes of your time to complete this survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc4nArPDC0wUfOS9p0WV37fTUBOG-9WLswGSB8aey0g2584Pg/viewform

Please note:

  1. Your participation in this study is completely voluntary and you can withdraw from the study at any time.
  2. Your answers to the survey are confidential and will only be used for the academic purpose of this study.
  3. To thank you for your time, you will receive a summary of the results, a recommendation on your Linkedin profile, and a certificate of appreciation upon the completion of this study.

If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments or feel free to contact me by email at: magra@alsun.asu.edu.eg

Thanks in advance!
