Open Standards in Machine Translation

Open Standards in Machine Translation

This video was recorded at W3C Workshop: Content on the Multilingual Web, Pisa 2011. The web is an open space and the standards by which it is "governed" must be open. However, one barrier clearly remains to make the web even more transnational and truly global. This has been called "the language barrier". Language Service Providers translation business model is clearly antiquated and it is increasingly being questioned when we face real translation needs by web users. Here, immediacy is paramount. This talk is about open standards in machine translation technologies and workflows, supporting a truly multilingual web.
