Surviving the World of Internet Marketing

Posted by on Mar 18, 2016 in Latest |

The world of on line marketing is as mysterious to the general public as the Bermuda Triangle is. It seems that every person you meet or get an e-mail from has a new and exciting product that they want you to try! And to add to the confusion, it seems that they all cost at least $19.00 (as the price always seem to be in USD) and sometimes as much as $997. For a product that does not guarantee you a thing other then the possibility that it will work. They all have one thing in common, which is great ad copy. Each one seems to be written by...

All research dealing with Natural Language Processing or NLP has been successful in the past, despite the fact that much of that success is unknown to the public. Many of the accomplishments are based on programming methods that can allow concepts and meaning to be translated in such a way, that a computer can use them to use language effectively.

Point 59: Judge Your Own Words by the Company they Keep

Posted by on Mar 18, 2016 in Latest |

I have recently been reading WLF Think Tank’s “101 Things a Translator Needs to Know” and wanted to highlight one of the many important points in the book – point 59.   Point 59: Judge Your Own Words by the Company they Keep, briefly states why it is so important to ONLY translate into your native language. This point in the book indirectly confirms this by explaining how it is very difficult for a non-native speaker to present an accurate text using the correct and accurate collocations, phrases, slang, old wives tales etc. I am sure that some linguists are able to translate into a language that is not...
