Joy of Translating Statistical Articles

Statistics is a powerful mathematical tool applied in various fields including information science (Big Data), clinical medicine, pharmaceuticals, industrial quality control, and business marketing.  We expect there will be more translation projects relating to statistics. It is the sexiest subject in the 21st century while many of us did not learn the subject at school.  Asa result, we are often unfamiliar to the statistics terminology in both Japanese and English.  In this presentation, we will show you examples of English into Japanese translation to demonstrate inaccurate translation due to lack of context comprehension, unfamiliar terminology, and other common mistakes.  The samples will be cited from medicine, life science, and other segments.
