Email Translator FAQ

What is Email Translation?

WorldLingo provides email translation from a source language to a target language (a language pair). For example, you can write an email in English (source language), and have it translated into German (target language).

What is Machine Translation?

Machine translation (MT) is the automatic translation of human language by computers. For instance, an English --> German MT system translates English (the source language) into German (the target language). With the advent of the Internet and the World Wide Web, and ever-expanding international communication and commerce, there is an increasing need for quick and inexpensive translation. New Web pages are created daily in tremendous numbers, and many Web page authors would like their material to be readable immediately all around the globe. Likewise, there is need for fast e-mail communication between speakers of different languages. It is difficult to keep up with the volume via human translation alone.

Machine translation has been under development in universities and industry for several years -- essentially since the advent of programmable computers. 100% accurate MT is not possible, mainly because human language is so ambiguous and so full of special constructions and exceptions to rules. In some cases it is impossible to arrive at a correct translation without using everyday knowledge of the world and reasoning ability that only humans have.

What do you mean by a 'gist' translation?

A Machine Translator powers WorldLingo's Email Translation Service. The technology used by WorldLingo is excellent, but due to the intricacies of different languages, a 100% accurate translation is not possible. WorldLingo estimates that our Email Translations are about 70% accurate.

What is Professional (Human) Translation?

Is the translation of text by accredited native language professional translators. Translation by professional translators is more accurate than machine translation, however, it is usually more expensive and requires more resources than machine translation.

What is a Language Pair?

Language pair is the term used to denote the source language and the target language involved in text translation. The source language is translated into the target language. For example the language pair English-French (en-fr) means that English will be translated into French. Language pairs are often abbreviated to the shorter two-character form, which is identical to the ISO language code definitions eg. en-fr (English to French), en-de (English to German).

What is an email alias?

An alternative name for a more complex email address. A WorldLingo language pair can be 'hidden' by an email alias. A choice of alias can be anything from a corporate name, a business department or a personal nickname. An email alias 'hides' the fact that you are using an email translation service. For example [email protected] could be an alias for the WorldLingo English to French email translation address [email protected]
