3 reasons to try machine translation

  1. To facilitate communication with people who speak a different language. Machine translation can help facilitate communication between people who speak different languages by providing a quick and easy way to translate text or speech from one language to another.
  2. To improve efficiency. In certain situations, machine translation can help improve efficiency by allowing people to communicate and work more quickly. For example, if you are working with a team of people who speak different languages, machine translation can help speed up the process of communicating ideas and collaborating.
  3. To expand the reach of your content. If you have a website or other online content that you want to make available to a wider audience, using machine translation can help you reach people who speak different languages. This can be especially useful if you are trying to reach a global audience or if you want to share your content with people who may not speak the same language as you.

Some of the issues, reasons and applications of machine translation are explained in our knowledge center. Machine translation is an enhancer (productivity to translators) and also a facilitator (for free when you only need gisting):

    You may also find some of our presentations on how users and practitioners can best use MT if you search for Pangeanic in slideshare.
