[Lang-8] Lang-8で添削されまくった

外国語相互添削SNS「Lang-8」すごいよいかも。何がよいかというとネイティブに添削してもらえるところ。

例えば海外の雑誌に論文等を書くと、日本人は内容以前にまず間違いなく「一度ネイティブに読んでもらって直してください。」と言われる。ここまでひどいことを言われなかったとしても、ネイティブに手直しを受けていない論文をそのまま世の中に放流すると、今度は技術書翻訳サービス等を扱っている会社からダイレクトメールが来るようになる。「(うちで雇った)学生が貴方の論文内の言い回しが変ちくりんなことに気づきました。うちでは〜〜」等々。ネイティブと非ネイティブには越えられない壁があるのを実感するし、非ネイティブであることは一生自覚していくべきだと常々思っている。

Lang-8だとそんな貴重な(自称)ネイティブな人がどこからともなくやってきて添削してくれる。まあ論文チェックしてもらうわけにはいかないだろうけど、カジュアルだけど正しい外国語で記しておきたいものを見てもらうのによいかも。なんといっても無料だし早いし。Dot3Dの英語ページ直してくれって日記書いたら1時間後には添削されまくってた。アプリケーション使った感想なんかも歓迎って書いといたんだけどそれは無視されてた。でもありがとうrichvhさん!今度変な日本語教えてあげるね!
