History of Computer-Aided Translation

History of Computer-Aided Translation

Proposals for the translator’s workstation can be traced back over more than 20 years. Their full integration and acceptance had to await technical developments of the 1990s, but their desirability for the effective utilization of machine aids and translation tools was recognized long ago. The title of workstation has been applied to a number of translation aids, but here we are concerned only with the type of workstation intended for direct use by professional translators knowing both source and target languages, and retaining full control over the production of their translations. Workstations and other computer-based translation tools are traditionally referred to as systems for “machine aided human translation” (MAHT), in order to distinguish them from MT systems with some kind of human assistance either before or after processing (pre- and post-editing), known often as “human aided machine translation” (HAMT).
