Human precision will always outperform computers.

Computer Translation

  • Computers cannot truly understand the sense of your message
  • They cannot decode subtleties nor catch humorous touches
  • Results are not targeted to your audience
  • Complex ideas and ambiguous expressions are not clarified
  • Errors in original documents are not corrected

Consequences

  • Translation errors and lengthy, heavy text
  • Failure to engage the interest of readers
  • Embarrassment, loss of credibility, and tarnishing of your image
  • Loss of clients or business opportunities, problems, lawsuits
  • Supplementary costs for adequate reworking of texts

"Transforming ordinary words into extraordinary language."

Colette

  • Automatic translation systems establish connections according to statistical rules and calculations
  • A human translator relies on intellectual capacity to choose words

Example

Épilation au laser, épilation à la cire, électrolyse
Hair removal, hair removal, hair removal (automatic translation)
Laser hair removal, waxing, electrolysis (human translation)

Computers acquire data.
Humans accumulate experience.
