About Real-time Translation
Real-time translation systems such as the Enterprise Translation Server are linguistically sophisticated machine translation (MT) products programmed with comprehensive dictionaries and a collection of linguistic rules that translate one language into another without relying on human translators. An MT system interprets the structure of sentences in the source language (the language the user is translating from) and generates a translation based on the rules of the target language (the language the user is translating to). The process involves breaking down complex and varying sentence structures, identifying parts of speech, resolving ambiguities and synthesizing the information into the components and structure of the new language.
