Nowadays, in one way or another, machine translation (MT) is part of our everyday lives. Most likely Google made that happen, about a decade ago, by launching Google Translate, a free instant online general-purpose translator allowing users to translate any text (words, phrases, documents, web pages) in different language directions. Although the translations of general-purpose MT systems (as opposed to more specialized, domain-specific ones) may not always be of good quality (especially when morphologically rich languages or ideographic ones are involved), users still have the opportunity to get (for free) the gist of a text or a web page written in...

The last significant breakthrough in the technology of statistical machine translation (SMT) was in 2005. That year, David Chiang published his famous paper on hierarchical translation models that allowed to significantly improve the quality of statistical MT between distant languages. Nowadays we are standing on the verge of an even more exciting moment in MT history: deep learning (DL) is taking MT towards much higher accuracy and finally brings human-like semantics to the translation process. In general terms, DL is a family of machine learning algorithms that use multilayer artificial neural networks to efficiently learn representation of high-level features from noisy...

The question is: are we all on the same evolutionary path? Or do some of us take different turns, make shortcuts and even arrive in different places? The TAUS Executive Forum on April 25 and 26 in Beijing opened new perspectives on translation in China that many of us had perhaps not expected. China typically copies what others have already built and done before them. Fast trains are modeled to the TGV in France, electric cars are inspired by Tesla, and fashion in China follows the trends around the world closely. So when Eric Liu of LocaTran Translations at the TAUS...
