When Carol Bové ran a passage she uses in herclass through an online translator, the software lost some things in translation.

Charles Tiayon's curator insight, September 13, 2013 1:55 AM

Bove, a senior lecturer in Pitt’s Department of English who teaches a translation studies course, said that “is low” should have read “it’s a little bit,” and “escape” should have been translated as “glimpses.”

While software developers and professional translators agree that the flowery language of poetry and literature would be better left to human translators, they have more trouble agreeing on the best use of machine translation programs. Professionals are debating the accuracy of translation software, its effect on jobs and what texts it can and cannot translate.

In 2010, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated that the number of positions for foreign-language translators in the U.S. would increase by 42 percent over the next decade — three times the average for all industries in the U.S. job market. While exact numbers are unknown, there are probably hundreds of thousands of translators, interpreters and people who use language in their jobs.

While these professionals would probably all be able to tell the difference between “escape” and “glimpses” in their respective languages, they are needed less and less for jobs that involve translating chunks of text. Instead, machine translation, completed on computers, iPads and smartphones, is taking over those jobs.

Jaime Carbonell, the director of Carnegie Mellon University’s Language Technologies Institute, said translation software relies on having enough digitized text  in both the original and the target language in order to generate the meaning that is most likely to be correct.

This means that for commonly written languages such as English, Chinese and Hindi, there is a lot of text for machine translators to use. But for less commonly used languages, there is subsequently less text to guide machine translation programs toward correct translation.

Using humans and using computers each has its own advantages.

“Machines tend to interpret technical words right, and humans tend to be the other way around,” Carbonell said.

While humans are unlikely to remember specific, technical vocabulary offhand unless they use it frequently, computers can store almost endless dictionary files.

Margot Olmeta's insight:

It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do."
