Chapter 9. COMPUTER-AIDED TRANSLATION (CAT) > MACHINE TRANSLATION DEMYSTIFIED

MACHINE TRANSLATION DEMYSTIFIED

Machine translation is what most people think of when they imagine computers replacing human translators. MT requires no human intervention; you simply input text and the software outputs the translation. MT software relies on a sophisticated parsing engine that analyzes the source text and translates it in real time. A number of MT applications are available; the following are a few of the more popular packages:

IBM WebSphere Translation Server (www-3.ibm.com/software/speech/enterprise/ep_8.html)

SYSTRAN (www.systran.com; you can try this software free at http://world.altavista.com)

SDL Enterprise Translation Server (www.sdlintl.com; you can try this software free at www.freetranslation.com)
