Garbage in, garbage out: feed AI translatable items
Speaker – Steve Dept, Founder & CEO
Recorded on July 15, 2020 | Duration: 15 minutes
On a daily basis, we hear and read about the threats and opportunities that come with new advances in AI. In the field of translation, the advances are real, the opportunities are ‘more, faster, more consistent’ and the threat is ‘a new level of fluency that does its best to hide mistranslations’.
When it comes to test material: disambiguation is key. For example, without help, the machine cannot infer from the context whether a <Dutch teacher> actually teaches Dutch or is merely a Dutch citizen who teaches any subject.

Steve Dept, Founder & CEO
Steve is one of cApStAn’s founders. He received his education in English, Dutch, French and German but he is essentially an autodidact and a field practitioner. In 1998, Steve was sought out to organise the translation verification of PISA 2000 instruments and, since cApStAn’s creation in 2000, Steve has supervised linguistic quality assurance in PISA and in over 35 international surveys and polls. His translatability assessment methodology is applied in small and large multilingual projects in both the private and the public sector. Steve is the driving force behind cApStAn’s adaptive strategy.
