Retell Back Translate is an optional feature in a Render project, dependent on the consultant's need or preference. If the consultant does not speak the receptor language of the translation team and would like this type of back translation, Retell Back Translate should be turned on. This can be changed by the Configure of your project.
As a user with Retell Back Translation assignments, you will listen to the receptor language translation and record your back translation in a language that the consultant understands. Let’s talk about how Render will guide you through this process.
To begin Retell Back Translation:
2.Click on your user name and input your password if you have one.
3.Click on the yellow Retell Back Translate button on your Home page. (If the button is not yellow, sync your machine.)
Render will display the Set Listen (below) page. A set is one section of audio that is related by a theme and gives you a wider understanding of the context of that portion of text. A set is made of smaller parts—passages, which is considered the smallest translatable unit (learn more here). This page has the entire set loaded to give you a look at the context of the translation team’s translation.
The yellow play button means that you have to press play before moving to the next step. While playing you can pause and scrub (move) backward, but you can only scrub forward to pieces that you have listened to.
4.Press the yellow Play button and listen all the way through.
5.Press the blue Play button to listen as many times as you would like to understand the context.
6.Press the yellow Next button.
You are now at the Select page. This is what the page looks like with a passage selected.
Let’s take a look at all there is on this page:
1. Home button
2. Set title
3. Select player
4. Play button
5. Next button
Hitting the Home button (1) will bring you back to your Home page. The Set Title (2) shows you what set you are currently working on.
The set you just listened to will be loaded into the Select player (3) split up by passages. When you enter this page on a new set, everything in the Select player will be yellow, indicating that there is work that needs to be done. Each passage will be separated by a thin gray vertical line in the player. If you click on any part of the passage waveform, it will turn bright blue, indicating it is selected. As you can see above, the first passage is selected and the passage to the right is yellow. There is also a scrollbar indicating that there is more audio that you cannot see.
You can listen to any part of the set by pressing the blue Play button (4) and scrubbing the player with the white arrow. After selecting a passage, the Record button will become active. Clicking Record will bring you to the Retell Back Translation Record page, with the selected passage as the translation audio source. Once you are finished with your back translation of the set and there are no more yellow passages, the Next button (6) will become active.
