What is Machine Translation?
The globalization of business and the increase in worldwide Internet access has spurred the need for easy, low-cost, immediate multilingual translations of Web pages, e-mails, correspondence and virtually every document. Machine translation provides individuals and businesses with a tool to obtain up-to-the-minute world news and information as well as send and receive multilingual communications.
Desktop Translator's advanced technology doesn't simply translate text word by word but actually analyzes sentences based on the rules of the language and translates the words and phrases in the context of the original document. Although not perfect, Desktop Translator offers a higher level of accuracy and reader comprehension than the standard automatic translation programs currently available.
