Lingo24 has created revolutionary new technology to streamline the work of professional human translators. Our new system Coach allows linguists to work more efficiently by automating some time-consuming parts of the translation process.
Coach combines machine translation with human translators and editors. But unlike other post-edited machine translation tools, Coach can be customised according to each client’s style, specialist terminology, and other guidelines. This allows it to produce high quality, consistent results, tailored for the target audience.
Lingo24’s founder and CEO Christian Arno explained: “For example, an engineering components company might need a catalogue translated for their foreign websites. Coach would ensure consistency in their own terminology and style, and automatically customise the level of quality to their requirements.
“Coach automates some of the most time-consuming parts of the translation process, and can cut clients’ costs by between 40 and 80 per cent. And translators can earn more since it allows them to work more efficiently. It’s a gain all round.”
Christian presents Coach in Seattle
Our IT team developed the software in collaboration with experts in Computational Linguistics from Edinburgh University. And we were delighted to get recognition from TAUS (the Translation Automation User Society) for our work. Christian was presented with their Excellence Award for Innovation at their annual conference in Seattle last month.
He said: “We are thrilled that our work together with Edinburgh University has been greeted with such international enthusiasm. Coach will have a significant impact on the translation industry, and we’ll be rolling out the system over the next few months.”
