The advancement of machine translation and generative AI is disrupting and bringing significant changes to the ways of how translation companies work, and the technology advancement is greatly impacting the the roles and business of individual translators. Many translators are feeling intimidated, and especially those lacking in access of newly introduced technology are already losing their positions and businesses.
However, Hansem Global’s stance is firm. Even though machine translation engines paired up with generative AI are developing at a frightening pace, the final reviewer and proofreader who check and verify the results of machine translation must be qualified and competent human translators. It is people, not machines, who filter and refine sensitive expressions according to regional and cultural differences. It is people with subject matter expertise in specific fields who can ensure the accuracy in areas related to life.
Without qualified and competent linguists or translators, translation companies can not exist. Therefore, as a translation company, Hansem Global values our translators. We are in a mutually dependent and beneficial partnership.
To build a trusting relationship with the qualified translators and to pursue long-term partnership, Hansem Global spares no effort in providing the necessary tools, training, and support to our translators.
Hansem Global’s Vietnam branch has secured an excellent pool of translators in Vietnamese, Thai, Malay, Burmese, and Indonesian, and strengthens our partnership with them by holding an annual Freelancer Day. This event is an opportunity to listen to their voices, concerns, and discuss how we can grow together.
We would like to share the valuable moment of ‘Freelancer Day 2023’ sent from Hansem Global Vietnam.”
Hansem Vietnam is proudly back in full swing, operating at 100% capacity after navigating the challenging landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic. We couldn’t have this successful comeback without our dedicated and talented freelancers, the backbone of our success. To express our appreciation and provide valuable insights, we recently hosted our second Freelancer Day 2023, a virtual affair powered by the wonders of online platform.
On December 23rd, despite the physical distance, the virtual gathering exuded warmth and enthusiasm, showcasing the enduring connection between Hansem and our exceptional freelancers, transcending geographical boundaries.
The event started at 9:30 am with our CEO, Mr. Il-hong Kim, who welcomed the freelancers with a heartfelt welcome and gratitude for their contribution in 2023. The baton was then passed to our event host, Ms. TuongVi, who recapped Hansem Vietnam’s achievements in 2023 and honored the top 5 outstanding freelancers for their hard work.
To enhance our freelancers’ skills and provide valuable support, we curated two presentations alongside some engaging activities. The first presentation, led by Mr. Anh Le, focused on “Tips & Tricks for a Smooth Translation Process”. This segment serves as a comprehensive guide for freelancers to navigate online CAT Tool platforms more seamlessly and efficiently while working on translation projects. Additionally, it provides valuable tips on resolving issues related to termbase, style guides, or internet connectivity to enhance the overall translation process.
The second training, led by Ms. TuongVi, centered on “Mastering Translation Excellence: Identifying & Rectifying Common Errors”. While our freelancers are undoubtedly talented, Ms. TuongVi addressed common errors made in 2023 and provided insightful examples. Plus, she gave tips on avoiding these slip-ups using CAT Tools’ integrated features. Before the training ended, Ms. TuongVi added an interactive quiz titled “Translation Errors and Where to Find Them” with freelancers enthusiastically participating for exciting bonuses. We believe that armed with this knowledge, freelancers will significantly reduce the occurrence of errors.
The final presentation was conducted by Mr. Anh Le, which was “BM Introduction”. Brace yourselves because, in 2024, we’re taking things up a notch with Plunet, our internal management system. No more drowning in a sea of emails – all projects will be recorded on the system, making tracking and checking a breeze.
To ensure everyone was on the same page, we wrapped things up with a Q&A session that left no stone unturned. We had freelancers covered from all angles – questions, issues, support, advice – you name it. And six freelancers with the most intriguing questions walked away with some sweet bonuses.
As the virtual curtains closed on Freelancer Day 2023, a sense of accomplishment and shared joy lingered in the digital space. Despite the online format’s challenges, the event showcased the resilience of our partnership. At Hansem Vietnam, we hold the deepest gratitude for all the freelancers who have been pivotal to our success throughout 2023. Your unwavering dedication and hard work have undeniably made a significant difference.
