    Abstract

    It is assumed that Japanese can analogize the meaning of original text if they read the original text according to the commonality of written expressions, such as the commonality of Kanji and Chinese characters in case of Chinese-Japanese translations. In this study, participants rewrote translated sentences while viewing simultaneously the original sentences written in Chinese and the translated sentences into Japanese by Language Grid as a machine translation service. We analyzed how chat between a Japanese rewrite worker and Chinese participant was affected when the original sentences and machine-translated text were simultaneously displayed during the rewriting work. Additionally, we analyzed and evaluated the effect of the simultaneous display on the rewritten translated text. We found that the simultaneous display affects the rewriting work such that it is possible to analogize the meaning of the original text. Furthermore, the simultaneous display improved the translation quality of the rewritten translated text.
