Data

I'm supposed to be transcribing data for my master's thesis. My thesis deals with translation of comics and I have loads of material needing to be transcribed. The process is as follows: I have in front of me two comic books, the French or English original on the left and the Finnish translation on the right, and they are both open at the same place. Then I scan each original page for expressions relevant to my thesis. If I find one, I locate it in the translated book as well. Then I type the original and the translation into a database table, plus information on the context and translation strategies used. Repeat until the last page is reached. It's really a quite simple and straightforward thing to do, but it's also unbelievably boring.

But it has to be done before I get to the interesting part: analyzing the data, MWAHAHAA!!

Erm. Right. Back to work.
