Translation Agency Introduces New Translation Tools

(From Express Pressrelease).

Lingo24 has made available from their website two new translation tools: Contextrans, which "uses statistical analysis of language to predict the most likely translations in a given context", and Parasaurus Rex, a thesaurus and paraphrasing tool.

Since Contextrans is currently only available for English>Arabic and Arabic>English, I've not been able to play with it.

I've tried the Parasaurus tool, but the English-only version, at least, does not look very useful (or maybe it still does not have enough data in its database). If you want to give it a try, you can find it here.

  1. Hi Riccardo,

    Please note we've now added Chinese and German versions of Contextrans to our site. The data comes from government sources so may well not be useful for technical translations, for example, or basic agreements, but it's quite useful for legal/political terminology.
