Not all people who hold the same position perform their jobs well. Their abilities may not be different but their attitude towards work is, and this affects their job performance. In Chinese document translation, having a positive work attitude does not only save time, but also improves work quality.
How to develop discipline while working on translation projects?
First, take every job seriously. Chinese document translation is a task, which requires prudence and patience. For example, when translating documents from French to Chinese, one encounters tens of thousands of words. This requires the ability to deal with complex grammars in addition to having knowledge. Without prudence and patience, it is impossible to translate articles without making mistakes. Being committed to one’s task is also important to prevent errors. Otherwise, translation projects would not be accomplished quickly and accurately. When encountering translation problems that are difficult to solve, omitting parts or translating arbitrarily is not acceptable and is considered irresponsible. What translators need to do is to gather information and continuously learn to enable them to overcome difficulties in the translation process through knowledge and experience.
Second, maintain discipline in terms of time management. Time is precious for everyone. Translating documents from French to Chinese often involves not just one person but many people. Work speed could affect the entire work process of the translation team; thus, managing work speed is very important. Ensuring Chinese document translation work quality also helps enhance proficiency. Since practice makes perfect, speed can likewise be improved. If work speed is increased, tasks can be completed faster, and clients will be satisfied.
