You will learn Human and Machine translation techniques and how to leverage both for each job:
Human translation essentially switches the table in terms of pros and cons. A higher standard of accuracy comes at the price of longer turnaround times and higher costs.
The advantages of human translation
• It’s a translator’s job to ensure the highest accuracy
• Humans can interpret context and capture the same meaning, rather than simply translating words
• Human translators can review their work and provide a quality process
• Humans can interpret the creative use of language, e.g. puns, metaphors, slogans, etc.
• Professional translators understand the idiomatic differences between their languages
• Humans can spot pieces of content where literal translation isn’t possible and find the most suitable alternative
The advantages of machine translation
• Many free tools are readily available (Google Translate, Skype Translator, etc.)
• Quick turnaround time
• You can translate between multiple languages using one tool
• Translation technology is constantly improving
