Software Still Can’t Match Humans in Producing Technical Translations
We have all seen the astounding pace of development of many types of machines. Today, a small device that you can hold in the palm of your hand allows you to do things that people as recently as a decade ago could not even have imagined. Fortunately for us, the day when machines fully replace humans has not yet arrived. This is especially true in the realm of technical translation services. Translation software has been in existence for some time now and these programs have been developed quite extensively. The Voice Over Times presents different benefits of machine translation: cheap, quick, and continuously improving. In many situations, they are indeed useful. For example, some translation apps for your smart phone can be used to quickly translate street signs.
