STAR Campus – Fishing the Babel Fish

What can machine translation do for me?instruction

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. 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.

  1. I’m glad to see the tool’s integration with MT services. I’m looking forward to the Webinar and making PangeaMT one of the choices when privacy is important and users want to create, update, customize and retrain their own engines.
