STAR Campus - Fishing the Babel Fish

Babel Fish or the never ending illusion of the possibility of machine translation

STAR Campus - Fishing the Babel Fish

In the book "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", the Babel fish is a small creature that you put in your ear to instantly understand anything that is said to you, in any language.

What can machine translation do for me? 


In real life, "machine translation" (MT) is a topic that you may either love or hate, but it is one that you cannot ignore. Transit comprises a series of interfaces for MT systems, which the user can use to access additional resources while they translate.

In this webinar, you will learn how you can benefit from using machine translation and how you retain linguistic "sovereignty" over your translations.
