Machine Translation (MT) aims at emulating the human translation process, while offering significant time and process efficiencies. Alongside our fully human translation services, Global Lingo is also able to utilise MT technologies in order to cater for specific projects with very high volumes and particularly tight deadlines.
Current industry Machine Translation tools use a number of systems and approaches: Statistical (uses bilingual text corpora to find similar segments), Neural (using the concept of artificial intelligence), and Rule-based (based on grammar, semantic, morphological, and syntactic rules). Global Lingo is able to assess a client’s requirement to suggest the most appropriate MT system and approach.
This form of translation is particularly suited to very-high-volume projects with tight deadlines, or where a lot of content needs to be first approximately understood to decide what requires full quality translation/post-editing. Machine Translation services are particularly suited to content which is highly prescriptive, instructional and repetitive, where consistency and technical language are prominent, for instance in technical content such as instruction manuals.
