A Translator’s Take on MT

Reading Time: 1 minute

There’s been a lot of buzz around artificial intelligence and machine learning lately. Both technologies are being heavily invested in, and their practical use cases range from gimmicky to life-changing. Depending on who you ask, emotions surrounding the topic range from optimism to fear. Freelance translators often loathe the rise of machine translation engines – automated systems that can translate entire documents by themselves, and quite well too. These engines can pose a threat to our livelihood, and sketch a possible future where humans merely function as guidance, while machines do the real grunt work. The same work that we as translators love so much.

Automatic or machine translation is perhaps one of the most challenging artificial intelligence tasks given the fluidity of human language. Classically, rule-based systems were used for this task, which were replaced in the 1990s with statistical methods. More recently, deep neural network models achieve state-of-the-art results in a field that is aptly named neural machine translation. Read Full Article.
