Smart Translation Technology

The new SmartTranslation™ technology uses the SmartAnalyse™SmartCorrect™SmartLookup™ and SmartMemory™ features to ensure optimum translation results with the highest possible level of operating convenience.


Improve translation of difficult nested sentences:

“Just as it is difficult for every student to translate complicated sentence structures into a foreign language, machine translations will also struggle to get passed these kinds of obstacles. We have now improved the Personal Translator’s handling of the complexity of nested sentences and nightmare structures”, says Dr. Gregor Thurmair, Head of Linguistic Research & Development at Linguatec, in explaining the new SmartAnalyse function™. Similar to a human translator, SmartAnalyse™ can resolve complex structures and even idioms, and therefore achieve considerably better translation results. Positive additional effect: The translation is approx. 25% faster.


SmartAnalyse™ can accurately translate idioms and expressions (PT Professional 18) :

Kick out the typo gremlin:
Correct texts (with e-mails for example) are more often the exception than the rule. Even the smallest typos and spelling mistakes can have a huge impact on the translation. SmartCorrect™ not only marks these kinds of mistakes like a normal spellchecker – on request it also corrects spelling that is obviously wrong during the translation process. The Personal Translator 18 can consequently produce a correct translation from a faulty original, e.g. “Nobody is prefect”. This makes cooperation with Google possible, where millions of documents have been analyzed for linguistic frequency.

SmartCorrect™ corrects typos and spelling mistakes

Per MouseOver into the dictionary:
Thousands of documents from the most diverse subject areas were analyzed for the dictionaries of the new Personal Translator 18. There are now more than a million dictionary entries, depending on the language and version. The Personal Translator 18 has also revolutionized how to look up entries. With SmartLookup™ you just have point to a word with your mouse to see its translation or to have it read out.

The intelligent translation memory :
A translation memory is a practical database of completed translations. If a sentence appears again to be translated, the revised, saved final version is used automatically. A relatively high level of concordance between the new sentence and the archived sentence is, however, required. This is where SmartMemory™ lends a hand! The Personal Translator 18 is intelligent enough to recognize proper names, locations and dates as parameters, and therefore enables significantly better synchronization between the current translation and the translation memory.

Sentence 1: Ms. Petra  Mehl from Munich will travel to Brazil on 24 January 2014.
Sentence 2: Ms. Schmidt from Castrop-Rauxel will travel to Recklinghausen on Monday 3 August 2014.

In a conventional translation memory only the words “from”, “will travel”, “to” and “on” are the same. Usually this is not enough to achieve a precise concordance or a “match”. The sentence cannot be found in the translation memory for the new translation.

SmartMemory™ applies the user’s parameter setting with its intelligent assignment of proper names, locations and time details:
Sentence 1: [proper name] from [location] will travel to [location] on [time details].
Sentence 2: [proper name] from [location] will travel to [location] on [time details].

Maximum concordance can therefore be achieved between the new sentence and the sentence saved in the translation memory. The new sentence can be translated with the help of the translation memory.
