Welocalize Dispatcher Connects Machine Translation Engines to Live Content
Welocalize, leader in innovative translation and localization solutions, announced the release of Dispatcher, a global community content translation application that connects user generated content (UGC) including live chats, social media, forums, comments and knowledge bases to machine translation (MT) engines for real-time translation.
Welocalize Dispatcher is a middleware product that acts as an immediate connector to machine translation engines, integrating directly into end-client applications for faster translation of community-driven content in various media forms.
“Dispatcher provides global brands the ability to immediately leverage valuable content across multiple geographies through the direct connection of real-time content to machine translation,” said Alex Yanishevsky, senior product architect of language tools at Welocalize. “Businesses are buried by vast amounts of data and UGC that is awaiting cost-effective and instantaneous translation. We built Dispatcher to accelerate translation of live content into 120 Welocalize-supported languages.”
Dispatcher is part of Welocalize transformative solutions offered to help organizations achieve speed and agility in the translation of community-driven content. Dispatcher utilizes pre-processing utilities to normalize UGC and misspellings, improving the quality of machine translation.
The MT profile dialog connects through an API to most MT engines including MS Hub, Safaba, Asia Online, Promt and IP Translator. Dispatcher is a completely customizable tool providing instant connectivity to MT engines trained on client-specific linguistic assets.
“We created a tool that meets the market demands for better global engagement and utility of content,” said Olga Beregovaya, vice president of language tools at Welocalize. “As MT becomes standard for translation, our clients require tools that fit their needs for flexibility and scale. Dispatcher delivers both.”
