k.A. Artificial Intelligence in Technical Translation
Machine Translation (MT) is one of the few fields in the area of machine learning that is already well developed. Nevertheless, in the professional language market – the domain of professional translators – MT is only used on a small scale.
By and large, MT technology currently serves to give people a basic understanding of texts written in a foreign language that they do not know. Yet MT has, as we argue in this paper, a huge potential to turbocharge the productivity of professional translators. Thereby, it will support and augment rather than replace and do away with professional translation.
