SOLVING THE TRANSLATION INDUSTRY DILEMMA

Today I would like to share with you an article that was originally published on TAUS – TranslationAutomation.com 


SOLVING THE TRANSLATION INDUSTRY DILEMMA

Communication across the world’s many spoken languages is a problem. The technology that can help solve this problem is getting better and better. But the professionals, needed to use and improve the technology – at least the vast majority of them – reject the technology and deny its advancements because they fear for their jobs.

A good Dutch expression jumps to mind:  “Man suffers most from the suffering he fears, but never appears.”
The translation industry is caught in a dilemma: to automate or not to automate. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. Using machine translation technology feels like a curse to everyone who spent years studying languages to become professional translators. But if you don’t, it’s becoming harder to stay in business. 
Customers want translations faster and cheaper. Machine translation technology can help increase efficiency and open new business opportunities.
