Machine Translation (MT)

With today’s centralized data repositories and powerful algorithms, why can’t machines produce good translations? How many reference materials do you own or have access to? How accurate and precise does the target content need to be?


The answer is that MT technology is improving, and that machine translation tools and humans already collaborate in various ways.


Linguists hate to say that you could save money using MT tools, but some companies are already pursuing this path. However, think twice before deciding to bypass the expertise of a human linguist. Intelligence can be artificial. A language and its culture will never be!
