Could someone please translate this? - Activity analysis of wikipedia article translation by non-experts is a 2013 conference paper written in English by Hautasaari A. and published in Proceedings of the ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work, CSCW.

[edit] Abstract

Wikipedia translation activities aim to improve the quality of the multilingual Wikipedia through article translation. We performed an activity analysis of the translation work done by individual English to Chinese non-expert translators, who translated linguistically complex Wikipedia articles in a laboratory setting. From the analysis, which was based on Activity Theory, and which examined both information search and translation activities, we derived three translation strategies that were used to inform the design of a support system for human translation activities in Wikipedia.
