Automation

One part of artificial intelligence is automation. As AI systems adapt and evolve with upgrades over time, they get better at automating certain processes. AI helps language services providers such as Akorbi in translating written words. 

AI hasn’t yet taken a leap to help with live, verbal interpretation, which still requires a human to speak. However, automation does help when you’re trying to find the best interpreter for your needs.

Data Analysis

Computers are very, very good at mining data. Any robust AI system needs programs to analyze data collected by computers. For example, when you’re moderating content in foreign languages, an algorithm can analyze the language and offer a translation. You can also search for terms in a web browser to help you moderate forums, respond to social media, or deal with customer comments posted online. 

AI helps with data analysis for interpreters in a few ways. It can help create the best fit for a staffer for a particular job. It may also help you figure out how to schedule interpreters on an as-needed basis.

Language Analysis

Language analysis goes a bit deeper with AI, and it helps with both translation and interpretation. For example, you have two words in a foreign language that look identical. But they may differ by one vowel, an accent mark, or some other syntactic marker that could alter the literal meaning or cultural definition of the words. AI can help you differentiate between the two words to ensure you have the right translation.

In terms of interpretation, AI can help you create captions for later use in meeting notes, such as when you hosted a virtual meeting with your remote teams in China, Germany, and South Africa. 

Humans Always Win

Artificial intelligence for translation and interpretation certainly helps Akorbi’s staff achieve world-class results. AI can help with data analysis, language analysis, and automated processes. 

Ultimately, humans are needed to translate and interpret languages properly, because languages are a human construct. Computers are great at math and performing calculations very quickly, but they may not have the empathy needed to truly understand where human language comes from. 

That’s why you need a human-powered language services provider like Akorbi at your side.
