Edutech launches on-demand translation
Dubai, April 8, 2009
Edutech Middle East, a leading provider of technology-enabled learning solutions, has launched an on-demand translation solution for non-native speakers of English.
The ‘Dynamic Translation Layer’ (DTL), which has been developed by Encyclopaedia Britannica’s Natural Language Division, provides on-demand translation of any word or phrase that appears in an HTML document, has been launched to help non-native English speakers benefit from online English resources better.
Edutech launched DTL at the opening of ‘Special Libraries Association - Arabian Gulf Chapter 15th Annual Conference’, which will run until April 9 in Kuwait.
DTL helps people who speak English as a second language by providing real time and accurate translation of words or phrases in its current context.
Through DTL, any English web-enabled resource can be read by users who are not native English speakers by providing translation assistance.
Edutech seeks to draw awareness to the excellent features of DTL, which can be easily implemented by inserting a short script into the HTML provided by the server, or by a simple downloadable-software.
Further, DTL goes beyond simple dictionary lookup by providing context analysis, phrase recognition and morphological support - a plural form in English is translated into the plural form in Arabic.
“Amidst the massive and continuous growth in volume of information going around the world wide web at the height of this information age, it is important that language does not become a barrier in the acquisition of knowledge,” said Raghavendra Manbol, head Information Solutions, Edutech.-TradeArabia News Service
