Dizzying growth in user demand for multilingual content
Every year the number of Internet users grows dramatically. According to data from Internet World Stats, currently, the number of Internet users globally exceeds 2,400 million; with Asia being the continent that concentrates the largest number of users. Specifically, China represents more than 22% of the total Internet audience. These users seek information in their native language and rely on machine translation to understand the information in foreign languages.
Increased use of costless web translation services presents new risks to corporate interests
Millions of pages and documents are translated for costless every day by Internet translation services, including the most used search engines. This trend creates concerns in corporations regarding confidentiality and security.
Business content expands
The amount of content created and maintained in companies for different initiatives is enormous and continues to grow every day. Since human translation is expensive, most of this content remains in a single language. Customizable for specific domains and business goals, SYSTRAN solutions help companies translate and deliver their content to users around the world in more than 60 languages. Simply put, with a solution from SYSTRAN, every company, large or small, can leverage and capitalize on existing information and achieve additional ROI by creating multilingual content from a document source.
Publish or extract the essentials?
The initial use of machine translation was just for the mere fact of extracting the essentials or general understanding of the content of information in a foreign language. As the technology has evolved, it has achieved better quality translation results that have been suitable for publishing multilingual content. Built-in features to customize specific domains and business goals, along with open APIs for easier integration with third-party applications, have led to new corporate implementations of publishing language translation software solutions within enterprise content management systems.
What do customers want?
MT customers want a cost-effective solution that offers “good enough” translation quality and saves time. The expression “good enough”, which is often used in business environments, means that the translations must exceed the quality threshold defined by the company. This can be achieved in a number of ways, such as by customizing the SYSTRAN software or by enforcing language consistency and terminology control. The initial cost to reach the quality threshold for each target domain depends on all existing linguistic assets, such as glossaries, translation memories, and translated texts. But companies also have to consider the relative cumulative costs of improving the translation quality of existing domains, or the quality of new domains. In short, those investments must be profitable. MT must be accurate, fast on current hardware, easy to maintain, and must result in savings on existing translation costs.
