Interpreter. One who enables two persons of different languages to understand each other by repeating to each what it would have been to the interpreter's advantage for the other to have said. (Ambrose Bierce)

Using Cloud Solutions for Translation: Yes or No?

Using Cloud Solutions for Translation: Yes or No? | On Interpreting | Scoop.it

We read about the benefits of using the cloud for work—using cloud applications and storage, for example. What we don't see are warnings of the risks. You have to look for these specifically; the information doesn't come to you as do the claimed benefits. This morning I got yet another e-mail from my web hosting service, encouraging me to use their new cloud storage, and I am tired of receiving iCloud notifications on my phone when I specifically chose not to use that service. So I’d like to share some things I learned in a graduate course on cloud computing at Boston University a couple of years ago, including some essential information from "Cloud Computing, A Practical Approach" by Anthony T. Velte, Toby J. Velte, and Robert Elsenpeter, to explain why using the cloud may not be such a good idea, at least for our work.

A failure to heed the warnings and advice given by the very interpreters who are essential to the provision of such a service, along with a failure to consider what would be involved in managing such a large contract, meant that the new system fell apart before it even began. Most of the over 2,200 qualified and highly-skilled interpreters registered with the NRSPI, who work in over 100 languages, decided to boycott the new arrangement, which both cut their pay and downgraded the level of skill required to provide the service.
