A tool for rapid manual translation

Nordström, Magnus and Pettersson, Paul (1993) A tool for rapid manual translation. [SICS Report]



There have been several attempts to realize the idea of a fully automatic translation system for text translation to replace human translators. By contrast, little work has been put into building tools to aid human translators. This report describes the ideas behind such a tool. The tool is intended to aid human translators in achieving higher productivity and better quality, by presenting terminological information extracted from previous translations. The report documents the implementation and evaluation of a prototype. The prototype has been demonstrated to and used by professional translators with promising results.
