Automation DOESN'T solve everything!
Translating your materials professionally is a smart business move. It makes people more likely to buy your product or service. You've probably heard about machine translation (MT) and are wondering what it is? Will it save you Time? Money? Will it make your life easier? Before you decide to translate your business documents using free online translators, here are some things you should consider about MT.
Free online translators are designed to generalize rather than specialize. They do not know what your text is about so they just guess. They're programmed to give preference to the most popular words and phrases. They store and use your data to learn which may be ok for a note to your friends overseas, but definitely not for your company's website or confidential material. Free translators might be fine for the casual user, but their reliance on statistics, errors from incorrect data, and lack of confidentiality make them unsuitable for serious business translation. MT can only do so much and at the end of the day you might realize that you've lost more than you thought you would.
Accurate information is key and consulting with experts will help you make the right decision.
Count on professional translators to get your message across clearly and effectively!
