Truly democratize the web
When talking about web content, every website has a topic of interest. For example, a restaurant’s website might focus its details on the menu, and a sports bar may choose to talk about the games that can be viewed on multiple over-sized screens. There are a myriad of ways to communicate information on the web, and a vast number of subjects that can be covered.
Also, there are currently more than 7,000 languages spoken in the world, but 80% of the online content is available in only one of 10 languages. To truly democratize web access, you should be able to translate any website into your preferred language.
Machine translation (MT) services are now available to help realize this translation process. By translating a website using MT, the process is automatized and the burden of translation is eased. In this blog post, I will walk you through the language capability problem, how MT works for specific topics and how you can get all that in aiXplain.
Language capability problem
As I said previously, there are a vast amount of languages in the world. If you want to hire a translator to translate your website, you would need one translator for each language (or highly skilled translators to cover more languages). We can see that this approach does not escalate by any means.
Machine translation services provide a scalable solution to this problem. Since MT services support many languages, they can be used to translate your desired pair of languages. Also, the translation quality is getting better, recent models such as neural MT are much better than previous ones.
Machine Translation for specific topics
A usual problem that people get when using Machine Translation is that the MT service does not translate well for one specific topic. For example, if I want to use an MT service to translate my website that talks about games, the service may not work well.
This problem occurs because, in general, Machine Translation models are trained using huge quantities of parallel data available on the web, such as books, subtitles, and articles. So the system is not able to generate good translation when you use a set of words and expressions that are too specific to a topic.
aiXplain solves both problems!
At aiXplain, we offer a solution for both problems in a simple way. Here we can translate your website in a range of different languages from different suppliers! Also, you can use your data to benchmark which system offers the best solution for your specific use case. The best part is that you do not need a technical background to get started, just by describing your problem in natural language we can solve it.
Organizations seeking machine translation solutions for an optimized automated workflow can now do so with aiXplain.
