The Translations Industry Can Attract More Business with AI

Arabian Reseller, March 23, 2020

Langpros’ CEO, interviewed by Chris Fernando of Arabian Reseller Magazine, retraces the impact of translation technology on the industry, as well as his expectations for the 2020 translation trends, the advantages for the clients, and the actual limits of AI-driven translation. 

Technology is deeply intertwined with the translation industry, as the first Computer Assisted Translation tools date back to more than 20 years ago. In today’s market, investing in innovation is the prerequisite for high-quality services with fast turnaround and at a competitive rate. Tools such as AI-driven Machine Translation are now capable of processing technical texts consistently and reliably. However, human review is still required. 

While being constantly improved, AI technologies still can’t quite grasp the full spectrum of written texts, as when translations are more abstract or complex, the human brain is still unmatched. Moreover, some rare languages and dialects might not be available for Machine Translation. 

The top trend for 2020 will be the increased popularity of Video Remote Interpreting services. This is why Langpros decided to invest in SmartLangPro, its VRI application available for pc, smartphone, and tablet. The app allows clients to manage their interpreting needs through a smooth and user-friendly interface. 

New technologies such as AI- driven Machine Translation and Video Remote Interpreting are helping the translation industry in attracting more businesses. Find out everything about the latest translation trends in the full interview.

AI AND TECHNOLOGIES IN TRANSLATION 

Gulf News, February 22, 2020

Artificial Intelligence is pushing the boundaries of translation, and many experts say that this innovation will change the way we live. But what is exactly its application and is it reliable yet?

In this Gulf News column, journalist Malavika Kamaraju gives answers to these questions by interviewing two prominent figures in Dubai’s language field. 

During the interview, Langpros’ CEO Matteo Ippoliti explained how AI will certainly play a role in translation and learning new languages, and it is already used in Machine Translation. 

However, for now, apps relying on AI only work for simple conversation and cannot translate complex interactions. Moreover, mastering a foreign language means knowing its culture, history and social context to understand subtle nuances. Machines still cannot do that. 

According to Ippoliti “A human brain’s understanding and perception of the world and its reality is far superior to a machine’s grasp of this domain”. 

This is why irony, poetry, sarcasm and figurative language are still out of reach for AI driven Machine Translation.

While at the moment Machine Translation always needs to be revised by human eyes and it does not perform well in more creative and abstract contexts, it does not mean this will never be the case. In the far future, machines will be able to feel just as humans do, and this will mean a new era not only for the translation industry but for the entire mankind.

TRANSLATIONS AND TRANSCREATION IN THE UAE

Communicate online column, 13 February 2020

The UAE with its strong spirit of inclusivity and tolerance has always been an open country as well as a melting pot of cultures with visitors and expats coming from all corners of the globe.

Indians, Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Egyptians and Filipinos are just some of the ethnic groups that live in this country with native Emirati.

The column illustrates with data and examples the role of the translation and transcreation industry in such a diverse context from the point of view of Langpros’ CEO.

In fact, in such a multicultural context, mistranslation could lead to misunderstandings that can be culturally insensitive and sometimes even offensive. However, most of the times they are just bad translations like in some translated expressions shown in the column.

The increasing implementation of artificial intelligence plays a key role in the translation industry. Studies predict that its influence will grow in the following years so will the importance of human translators decrease in the future?

Culture definitely gives language different context and translators should deal with this challenge.

In the column, we discover the best way to overcome language barriers by respecting cross-cultural differences.
