Overview

Hello Japan. How do we communicate?

We can only imagine how the Dutch seafarers, who went ashore at Hirado, started their communication with the Japanese in the early 1600s. Gesturing, pointing at objects and helplessly speaking their own words. They learned and found common words and started trading. Continents got connected and economies started to grow.

You could say that we have come a long way since the years of discoveries by famous world explorers. Today we are über-connected. We have the internet, smart phones, wearables and soon implants that communicate for us and with us. We are drowning in information and everything is documented and accessible for everybody. Abel Tasman would be flabbergasted if he witnessed how modern travelers use NTT DoCoMo phones to read and translate restaurant menus real-time and how taxi drivers in Tokyo use them as high-tech interpreters to communicate with their foreign passengers.

And yet for most businesses in Japan communication with the world is still a problem. Translation is costly and often a painful undertaking. Translation technology is coming of age. Machine translation technology is being tried and used by many small and large companies and government agencies. It is time for the translation industry to work together in sharing translation data, quality metrics and best practices. The TAUS Tokyo Executive Forum is an annual event for Japanese buyers and providers of translation and their overseas partners. Through an open exchange about language business innovation and translation technology participants seek to grow their business.

The TAUS Tokyo Executive Forum 2017 on April 25-26 is the seventh TAUS meeting in Japan. The first took place in April 2010 and was also hosted by Oracle Japan. For this year’s forum we ask all participants some simple questions: Are you ready to use technology? Crowdsourcing translation models? Social translation platforms? Advanced workflow systems? Sharing translation data? Agreeing on translation evaluation metrics? Using cloud-based translation management systems? What is the state of play? Is machine translation technology an option? Are your translators ready to work as post-editors?

In other words: “Hello Japan. How do we communicate?”

Presentations will mostly be in English. Presenters may choose to present in Japanese. In these cases an interpreter will be provided.

12:30 / Lunch

14:00 / Big News from the Related Field: Controlled Language, Tetsuzo Nakamura (Electrosuisse Japan)

Big news from the controlled language field at the early stage of this year, January 25! On that day, ASD, the AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe, announced their latest Issue 7 of the controlled language, ASD-STE100, Simplified Technical English 100. As you know, ASD-STE100 is one of the most famous controlled languages in English and has been renewed completely from the previous one, Issue 6: the newly and logically arranged rules, and a variety of example sentences covering various industrial categories. I will compare the latest one, Issue 7 with the previous one, Issue 6. Also, I will roughly compare it with the other famous controlled languages such as Rule-based (English) Writing from tekom and The Global English Style Guide by Mr. John Kohl.

14:20 / New SDL Trados Studio 2017 with innovative technologies of TM and MTGen Sato (SDL Japan)

Machine Translation

9:30 / Data Marketplace, Jaap van der Meer (TAUS)

9:40 / MT Market Report 2017Jaap van der Meer (TAUS)

9:50 / OpenNMT & NMT BenchmarkSatoshi Enoue (SYSTRAN)

The year of 2016 was all about Neural Machine Translation (NMT) in production. Major MT providers launched NMT services and stunned the public by its unprecedented translation quality. While most providers keep the systems “Closed”, SYSTRAN took a bold step with Harvard NLP group and launched "OpenNMT", an industrial-strength, open-source NMT system. We will introduce this active and rapidly growing community with many requests and contributions coming from both academia and industries all over the world. We will also introduce The NMT-Benchmark Initiative, a platform for sharing and comparing NMT system performance to further advance NMT technology.

10:20 / The Potential for Utilizing Neural MT Engines in Industrial TranslationTakeyoshi Nakayama (Human Science)

In 2016, major companies such as Google and Microsoft released neural machine translation services. And several open source neural MT engines have been released in recent years. We evaluated these services and engines using the actual data from our localization business. The evaluated language pairs are English to Japanese and Japanese to English. We will share the evaluation result, issues, and possible solutions.

10:50 / Refreshment Break

11:20 / Pangeanic's Cor : the web, the database and NMT - What changes in EN-JP?by Manuel Herranz (Pangeanic)

Neural research has taken the MT community like a storm and it looks the game changer for the foreseeable future. Although the basis for neural developments have been around for several years, it was only the discovery of GPU power, almost by chance that made it possible. Pangeanic has developed two technologies for the translation community: one is the result of a national R&D project. Cor not only can crawl, detect new or deleted content on a website, it can also pull the content out in a translation-friendly format. Elastic Search-based ActivaTM is the result of a EU project and it interfaces with Cor as a CAT-tool independent TM, resolving some interoperability issues thanks to machine learning for tag and in-line handling. Finally, our own NMT results using TAUS data help translators do the job.  This presentation will also compare our experiences between SMT and NMT, with open questions on hybridization for the future.

11:50 / Dell EMC Machine Translation Use Case for Support ContentTakanori Moriyama (Dell EMC)

Sharing how MT has been used within Dell EMC (former Dell) customer support organizations in comparison with Human Translation and Post Edit. This will include pros and cons analysis of each of the methods, current challenges and future plans.

12:20 / Google NMT, Macduff Hughes (Google)

Google's machine translation systems began switching to Neural Machine Translation (NMT) in late 2016. We'll discuss Google's experience in launching neural systems to users, the advantages and pitfalls of neural compared to phrase based techniques, some of the big problems that still need to be solved, and some opportunities for applying translation systems to new types of problems.

12:50 / Lunch

Game Changers & Innovations

14:15 / Make your Printouts Universal with QR Translator, Kenji Takaoka (PIJIN)

QR Translator is an innovative web solution that connects the offline to the online through a QR code, which recognizes the language setting of the user’s smartphone. QRT has expanded to more than 10,000 locations in Japan, and our next challenge is to help Visually Impaired Persons (VIPs) read the content of any printed document in their own language, without any difficulties. VIPs nowadays usually use the Talkback (Android) or VoiceOver (iPhone) functions to read webpages with their smartphones. We are collaborating with an organization that supports VIPs with the aim of developing a protocol with which VIPs from multiple countries can obtain information through various kinds of printed documents with QR codes on them.

14:40 / Innovating the LSP-Translator Relationship through Data-Driven Translator Profiles, Olga Kuchuk (Gengo)

Most LSPs ask their translators to fill in all the standard static information - "please input your years of experience", "please tell us your specialties".  This rigid structure may have worked before, but it can no longer keep up with the current speed of digital innovation within the translation industry. At Gengo, we're focusing on more fluid, dynamic profiles that track and update translator data in real time. With constantly-evolving translator profiles, we can guide translators on a dynamic path leading to measurable and impactful improvements in translation quality and output.

15:05 / Mobile Translation for the Digital Economy, Marisa Bowers (CSoft International)

Two of the biggest trends impacting the translation and localization industry are the continued development of mobile technology and AI (artificial intelligence.) In today’s hyper-connected world, everyone is accessing information including translated content on mobile devices. This is why mobile will play an increasingly important role in the translation ecosystem. During this presentation, Carl Yao, VP of Global Strategy at CSOFT International, will discuss the versatility of mobile translation in the era of omnichannel commerce where content is becoming smaller, more fragmented, distributed on multiple channels, and in need of on-demand translation in minutes and around the clock. Legacy localization services are no longer sufficient in meeting these always-on, agile, and fast translation requirements of the digital age. Given this change in the translation landscape, mobile translation services like Stepes that are able to deliver quality, speed, and scalability are poised for massive growth.

15:30 / Refreshment Break

16:00 / Very Large-scale Lexical Resources for Enhancing Entity Translation in MT Systems, Jack Halpern (CJK Dictionary Institute)

A major issue in MT applications is the recognition and translation of named entities. Even the advanced corpus-based technology used in state-of-the-art NMT (neural machine translation) systems, not to speak of conventional NET (named entity translation) and NER ((named entity recognition) techniques, are inadequate in recognizing and accurately translating entities such as place names, personal names, and POIs. The fundamental problem is that to achieve high accuracy requires up-to-date large scale lexica, which are expensive to build and time-consuming to maintain. It has been shown in various studies that robust MT systems and morphological analyzers capable of processing lexemes, rather than bigrams or n-grams, must be supported by a large-scale computational lexica.This presentation summarizes some of the major linguistic issues related to CJK named entities, including orthographic variation, and introduces several Very Large Scale Lexical Resources (VLSLR) consisting of millions of CJK named entities, such as a database of Japanese POIs (schools, highways, hotels, etc) and personal names, and a comprehensive multilingual database of Chinese names of over 100 million entries. With computer memory virtually unlimited, the time has come to leverage the power of large scale resources to dramatically enhance the accuracy of entity translation.

16:25 / Transform of Translation Business with MT, Suguru Sakanishi (Yaraku)

Yaraku develops a translation management system called "YarakuZen", that is for non-professional translators. The main features are a simple UI/UX, freemium pricing model and a translation order function. As MT demands on end clients side grows especially with Google NMT, LSPs need to offer a solution with MT recently. And some of LSPs in Japan start to provide it as a customised YarakuZen with their brand ID and their translation service. We are transforming a business of LSPs with a growth of MT needs.
