AI AND THE TRANSLATION INDUSTRY

Gulf news, February 22, 2020

Innovation in the language industry radically changed the landscape of education and translation services. Paper dictionaries and practical guides for tourists are long gone, in favor of apps and machine translation services. 

And progress is not stopping, as companies are studying methods to issue simultaneous interpreting via smart headsets or Google Translate’s Camera, which reads and translates foreign signs and text for you. 

AI will change the way we live, but what is the present state of the language industry?

Langpros’ CEO Matteo Ippoliti in the article explains how Neural Machine Translation affected the translation field and it is used by tech giants such as Google and Microsoft. 

However, even if MT has improved, human work is still necessary. 

Translators and interpreters are required to have a deep cultural knowledge of the audience they are translating for, as well as linguistic fluency. Machines are yet not capable of understanding nuances, puns, and more abstract text, such as comedy or poetry. 

At the moment, we still did not manage to create a machine that could grasp an emotion and process it like a human being. However, this does not mean that we won’t be able to do it in the future, but the consequences will not be limited to the translation industry, they will dramatically change the history of mankind.

EVOLVING TRANSLATIONS IN THE UAE

Communicate online column, 13 February 2020

The UAE has always been popular for its “melting pot” ethos of blending diverse people and promoting economic growth through assimilation and integration.

It is a multicultural hub without equal that welcomes visitors and more importantly expats from all over the world.

In this column, the founder of Langpros illustrates the demography of the UAE in order to explain the substantial differences of languages and cultures of this population.

This multicultural and multilingual society demands efficient communication and effective translations in order to deal properly with such a mosaic of different cultures. 

That’s why a good translation here consists of both an interlingual and intercultural transfer.

Even if current implementation of artificial intelligence has been increasing and the translation industry and translators already work intensively with AI, when dealing with particular expressions that are unique for each country the approach must be different.

In the column, we can find curiosities, outstanding challenges even for highly skilled translators, the role of transcreation, and the importance of protecting cultural heritage and transmission of knowledge with high-quality translations.

LANGPROS’ CEO ON THE POWER OF LANGUAGE

 Communicate online, 3 December 2019

 Understanding the potential of language, its influence, and ascendancy in our life, is one of the main scopes of the interview given by Langpros’ CEO Matteo Ippoliti entitled “The Power of Language” by Arjun Rk. 

Retracing technology developments in the field of translation over the past 20 years from CAT tools to machine translation and Google, the interview offers important insights on the future of the sector and of human involvement in translations in the digital era. 

The use of machine translation is analyzed according to the service provided: legal, digital or marketing translation, considering the significance of linguistic quality, accuracy and cultural output.

Language is not merely words but it also affects our way of thinking and understanding the world, an interesting topic highlighted in the CEO’s responses from a cognitive, philosophical and cultural point of view

For instance, cultural and social transformations in politics and gender roles play an essential part in the construction and innovation of the language we all speak. Nowadays we witness many linguistic modifications due to these social and political changes as the language also reflects the society we live in.

Each culture has its own peculiarity: have you ever thought about the innumerable names given to Italian Pasta? This is why the interview also takes into consideration whether using English language is inevitably the best way to convey the proper message for every culture. Is it always the best choice? The article shows interesting answers and ideas on the power of language as an indispensable part of our identity shared by Langpros’ CEO Matteo Ippoliti.
