|Meeting Description:||The Workshop on Human-Machine Interaction in Translation, collocated with the 2nd International Conference on Translation and Interpreting Studies 'TRANSLATA II: Translation in Theory and Practice,' will be held from 30 October to 1 November 2014 at the University of Innsbruck (Austria).
Machine translation has been researched and developed for 60 years and has seen considerable improvements in the course of the last decade due to a focus on SMT (statistical machine translation). This trajectory, however, has its own inherent difficulties, e.g. a lack of integrating linguistic theory into the algorithms used. This workshop, accompanying one of the largest conferences on translation, TRANSLATA II, focuses on the state of the art and future developments in the field of machine translation, and on the relationship between machine translation and human translation. Another focus of the workshop is computer-aided translation (CAT) and the relationship between information technology and man in terms of translation and interpreting.
The workshop is divided into five components:
1) Opening presentations by hosting university
2) Presentations by scientific contributors
3) Presentations by technology providers
4) Tool demonstrations (open session)
5) Synthesis and discussion of results
