Think Machine Translation Will Save You Time? Think Again.

October 17th, 2015 Posted by No Comment yet

According to the book The New European Patent (2015) by Alfredo Ilardi, the EU Patent Office’s investigation of the suitability of machine translation for translating patent documentation resulted in the following conclusion:

“Given the state of technological development, the maximum period for the development of high quality machine translations cannot be considered to exceed 12 years.”

While the EU’s intention was not to deride machine translation, its conclusion once again provides consumers with a stark reminder that MT remains a poor substitute for human translation; an unreliable option fraught with the potential for inconsistences and inaccurate “Translationese”.

So, how long can you afford to wait for high-quality translation?

If your deadline is less than 12 years away, why not contact AltoLingua for professional, high-quality human translation at affordable rates? We stand by our conviction that human translators are always the best fit for human readers.

AltoLingua Helps Orphans in Uganda

September 14th, 2015 Posted by No Comment yet

Caring about our future means caring about our kids.

Swedish non-profit organization Kids of Uganda works to give orphans in Uganda the hope of a brighter future through its orphanage and by providing support to local foster families.

Kids of Uganda is different from other aid organizations because it works together with the local community, building it up both socially and economically by creating jobs and growth.

AltoLingua has helped Kids of Uganda to spread its message further and attract new and broader support by translating its new website into English free of charge.

We want to warmly wish Kids of Uganda and all the kids in the village of Bubulo the very best for the future!
