What's actually going on in the brain when it processes language? And if words affect the mind in different ways, are some more persuasive than others?

Concept Search - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A concept search (or conceptual search) is an automated information retrieval method that is used to search electronically stored unstructured text (for example, digital archives, email, scientific literature, etc.) for information that is conceptually similar to the information provided in a search query. In other words, the ideas expressed in the information retrieved in response to a concept search query are relevant to the ideas contained in the text of the query.


Concept search techniques were developed because of limitations imposed by classical Boolean keyword search technologies when dealing with large, unstructured digital collections of text. Keyword searches often return results that include many non-relevant items (false positives) or that exclude too many relevant items (false negatives) because of the effects of synonymy and polysemy. Synonymy means that one of two or more words in the same language have the same meaning, and polysemy means that many individual words have more than one meaning.

Assemblée Nationale : Plus de 500 millions de francs CFA pour l’installation d’un système d’interprétation

Assemblée Nationale : Plus de 500 millions de francs CFA pour l’installation d’un système d’interprétation | language technologies | Scoop.it

Le Parlement européen veut doter l’Assemblée nationale du Sénégal d’un système d’interprétation simultanée pour six langues nationales, a déclaré mardi à Dakar Thijs Berman, député européen, soulignant que le financement est estimé à 800.000 euros, soit 524 millions francs CFA.

‘’Les langues nationales jouent un rôle important dans le rapprochement des citoyens et des députés et pour des débats entre députés, qui représentent des préoccupations citoyennes qui doivent être reflétées dans les délibérations et prises de décision’’, a –t-il dit.

Thijs Berman s’exprimait lors d’un atelier de présentation par le professeur Ismaïla Madior Fall d’un rapport sur l’étude diagnostic sur l’organisation et le fonctionnement de l’Assemblée nationale.

Ce rapport a été commandité par la Commission européenne en 2012 en préparation d’un projet de soutien à l’Assemblée nationale, lancé récemment et financé par le Fonds européen de développement (FED) à hauteur de 550 millions de francs.

‘’Le Parlement européen a 23 langues nationales différentes mais on a des interprètes. Je vois que l’Assemblée nationale du Sénégal n’en a pas alors qu’il y a six langues et il y a beaucoup de gens qui ne savent pas s’exprimer en français, la seule langue qui est admise’’, a indiqué le député européen.

‘’Ce que nous allons faire avec l’Union européenne c’est aider l’Assemblée nationale à avoir des interprètes dans toutes les six langues pour que tout le monde puisse se faire comprendre. C’est essentiel’’, a martelé Thijs Berman.

Interview with Riccardo Schiaffino," About Translation blog" | Wordbee

Interview with Riccardo Schiaffino," About Translation blog" | Wordbee | language technologies | Scoop.it
Riccardo was kind enough to interview with us about the state of the translation industry in a wide-ranging, insightful, and rambling interview.

Riccardo Schiaffino writes the About Translation translation blog, which was selected by BabLa as one of the top 25 language professional blogs, and also as one of the top 100 language-lover blogs being published today. When you look around the little world of translation blogs on the web (but what a world it is!), it doesn’t take long to discover the About Translation blog, whether it’s referenced, or on somebody’s list of best translation blogs. Oh, and he’s a truly experienced and specialized translator for English into Italian legal work!

We would like to thank Riccardo for interviewing with us, and for providing such insightful and thoughtful answers!

The interview covers a variety of topics, like the future of machine translation, the nature of “word people,” and the differences between the translation industry in Italy and in the USA.

We requested a photograph of Riccardo sweating over a translation on an Olivetti typewriter, but we’ll have to settle for a picture of Riccardo working at his favorite CAT tool and looking like a happy translator!
