Google Translate Neural Translations Promise Better Results

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

Machine translation programs have been around since at least the early 1990s. In the past, the results have always left a lot to be desired, but I suppose that someday, someone will finally get it right.

Google Translate is a widely used translation service by Google that is probably the most used translation service on the Web these days. Google states for instance that the system processes 18 million translations per day from Chinese to English alone. Up until now, Google Translate used a phrase-based translation model to power the translation engine. This method breaks a sentence up into words and phrases, and translates them largely independently from each other.
