La révision comme clé de la gestion de la qualité des traductions en contexte professionnel

Abstract : This thesis attempts to position revision within the scope of specialised translation quality management. For that purpose, we describe the characteristics of the specialised translation process, the various means of ensuring quality, and we stress the decisive role played by quality assurance and quality control. Definitions of the main interventions on specialised translations - re-reading, correction, revision, editing - are also clarified. After setting down revision as the comprehensive examination and improvement of a translation, the author attempts to describe its didactic and professional context. Data on the socio-economic conditions of revision practice are gathered ; revision types and applicable quality criteria are studied ; Finally, the status of revision in research and translator training is analysed. The survey on revision practice and quality management in specialised translation, based on a questionnaire addressed to translation professionals, contributes to filling the gap in knowledge on revision. Quantitative data are obtained on the extent of revision use, the way revision is perceived, the methods implemented, the other interventions on translations, and the level of compliance of practices with regards to the BS EN 15038 translation standard. The diversity of habits and attitudes towards revision is confirmed by the survey.
