NEW YORK, December 17, 2013 --/PRNewswire/ --
One Hour Translation, the web's leading professional translation service, announced today the launch of its global fair trade program, which will provide farmers across the globe with free translation services to help facilitate clear and direct communication with their customer base and partners. This initiative aims to support the estimated 500,000 small-scale farmers responsible for putting food on the plates and coffee in the cups of two billion people around the world today.
"As a company that stands behind fair trade practices, we strongly believe in supporting the farmers who feed people all over the world on a daily basis," said Yaron Kaufman, Co-Founder and CMO of One Hour Translation. "In a global marketplace, communication is essential to getting the right message to the right people, and fair trade farmers require enhanced communication services to bridge the language divide in order to promote their products and earn a living. One Hour Translation is proud to become part of the fair trade equation and to help alleviate some of the financial burden that contributes to the disenfranchisement of our farmers."
Joining the likes of Starbucks, Nestle, and Ben & Jerry's, One Hour Translation seeks to assist the independent fair trade movement - which benefits farmers in over 60 developing countries - by providing translation services at no cost to farmers across the globe. Through this free translation service, farmers can convey messages directly to their target markets, in their respective native languages, regarding what they are producing, how their products are grown, packaged and shipped, and why the products are beneficial to local communities and the environment. Additionally, providing free translation services helps to eliminate the costs associated with hiring outside sources to act as intermediaries and help boost overall awareness, revenue and keep the global farming infrastructure operational.
MUNICH - The European Patent Office (EPO) today has added the final set of languages to its free machine translation service Patent Translate, one year ahead of schedule. The service now offers on-the-fly-translation of patent documents for all 28 official languages of the EPO's 38 member states, plus Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Russian. It is accessible on the EPO's free online patent database Espacenet and the European publication server.
“We are delighted to complete Patent Translate today to provide the world’s most comprehensive multilingual platform for patent information", said EPO President Benoît Battistelli. “Patent Translate breaks down the language barriers to patent information, not only helping patent offices, but giving inventors and businesses easier access to an enormous amount of information about the latest technologies, which is so crucial for their R&D efforts", he added. “Its early completion means that we can use the coming months to further improve the quality of the service in time for the planned introduction of the unitary patent in Europe."
With the addition of Korean, plus eight more official languages of member states - Albanian, Croatian, Estonian, Macedonian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Serbian and Turkish - Patent Translate now offers translations from and into English for 31 languages. The EPO has also added new language pairs for French and German, now making it possible to translate from and into French and German for 17 of those languages: Albanian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Estonian, Finnish, Hungarian, Icelandic, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Polish, Romanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian and Turkish.
Launched in February 2012 and integrated into Espacenet and the European publication server, Patent Translate was set up to provide multilingual access to the EPO’s vast collection of patent documents. It is the result of co-operation between Google, the EPO, the national patent offices of the member states and other major patent offices worldwide, which supply patent data in their national languages to train and enhance the system. Languages have been added gradually, and its completion to cover all 28 official languages of the EPO's 38 member states, plus the most important Asian languages had originally been foreseen for the end of 2014.
