Assessing Language Translation and Interpretation

Method of Assessing Language Translation and Interpretation

This patented method establishes a standard for translation metrics, offering analysis and feedback for grading and improving translation activities. When translating from a source language to a target language, word-for-word substitutions are not always adequate due to nuance, cultural variation, and native meaning. This technology provides user-definable ratings of accuracy, interpretation of intended message, and formatting, enabling effective language translation and interpretation of the source material. By not focusing on specific word choice, the technology is also able to more accurately assess the quality and accuracy translations and interpretations, taking concerns such as sentiment and content into account.
