The possibility of language : a discussion of the nature of language, with implications for human and machine translation by Alan K Melby( )

16 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the limits of machine translation. It is widely recognized that machine translation systems do much better on domain-specific controlled-language texts (domain texts for short) than on dynamic general-language texts (general texts for short). The authors explore this general - domain distinction and come to some uncommon conclusions about the nature of language. Domain language is claimed to be made possible by general language, while general language is claimed to be made possible by the ethical dimensions of relationships. Domain language is unharmed by the constraints of

Almost everything you ever wanted to know about translation by Lola Bendana( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in French and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The book provides basic information for those that are not familiar with translation and its process. We believe this small book will be a great educational tool, especially for requesters of translation services. There is also a section for translators and project managers related to specification and translation process, certification and revision guidelines. The information presented is invaluable for students of translation. One of the main topics at the core of the publication is Translation Quality, a concept in many cases misunderstood. Everyone agrees that quality is important, but how do you define it? We made an effort to provide a simple yet powerful definition that discusses its two main elements: specifications and appropriateness. In the appendixes, we included several links to valuable resources such as professional associations, glossaries and termbases, Code of Ethics and Translation Standards. We concluded our work with a glossary of terms and definitions for the translation industry."--Author description
