Right now, you could be reading this article in one of the 6,000 languages that people speak on this planet. This article was originally written in English, but that doesn’t stop anyone from translating it into their native language. In the past it would take at least one person, maybe more, to translate a long document from one language to another. Nowadays we have translation applications that can do it in seconds. We take for granted that you can find an article on the Internet that is in Latin and almost instantly be reading it in English.
Now we can see the viewpoints of people all around the world just by cutting and pasting an article into an online translator. With one or two clicks, you can be enjoying a Latin article in your native language.
Online translator is an automatic translator that uses a database and technology to translate words, phrases, and sentences from one language into another. This application can amazingly translate between different languages. It’s a powerful system and helpful for anyone who needs to get a solid translation of text.
The nice thing about most translators is that if you need Latin to English translation for example, you can cut and paste an article and put it right in the translator. Just hit the translate button and you’ll get a decent translation. Of course semantics and grammar will differ from language to language, but that’s an inevitable hurdle. Translators are getting better at it however and soon I’m sure the problem will be solved or at least hugely alleviated.
All of this of course does not replace the need for human translators. Automatic translation services or applications, at this point, cannot always decipher the nuances of the human expression. It can take a very skilled and seasoned multi-lingual specialist to really do great translations. That said, everyday communication is benefiting from the current revolution in online translation.
