MACHINE TRANSLATION NOW AVAILABLE ON COMPUSERVE COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 21
/PRNewswire/ — In an industry first, CompuServe, the only global commercial
information service, today announced the availability of multi-lingual
machine translation in its MacCIM Help Forum. Translation from English to
French and French to English, as well as English to German and German to
English, is done automatically in near real-time, making it possible for
CompuServe users who do not speak the same language to share information and
"CompuServe is a global community, bringing people and ideas together across
time zones and cultures," said Timothy Oren, CompuServe’s vice president,
Future Technologies. "This new technology is a first step toward removing
the language barriers to worldwide communication and understanding. It
demonstrates our ongoing commitment to serving a global community."
Michael Tacelosky, president of MicroTac Software, is involved in the machine
translation industry and has used the CompuServe translator. "The goal here
is simply to communicate," he explained. "Machine translation integrated
with electronic messaging is a natural combination. Without it, I cannot
communicate in French or German. I don’t know enough to read or write those
languages. But with the computer’s help, I can communicate with someone who
doesn’t speak English. It’s a real breakthrough."
