With rapid technological advances easing and improvising several business processes, translation agencies in Delhi and around the world are also expected to get on the technological bandwagon. In an increasingly digital world, organizations demand an excellent blend of human and machine translators that can quickly help them in leveraging diverse languages for better customer interaction and operations across the globe.  While the previous versions of Machine Translation (MT) existed only in the phrase-based translation form, now it’s been in high demand that these tech-enabled translation services get flexible in real time, too. 

The Translation Industry in 2018

While the demands from language translation services in Delhi and around the world are increasing massively, the experts suggest that still the year 2018 wasn’t much exciting as no earth-shattering developments took place in the domain. As the revolution was still distant, the industry witnessed an evolution. The primary steps of this evolution included the innovation of translation and localisation tools due to progressive technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Automation and Machine Translation.  Large organisations with massive amounts of content to share have already explored these tools for their translation purposes, and slowly the middle and small companies are also working at including these technologies in their functions.

There has been some progress in the way data-driven localisation and translation through online channels were being made, but still, these tech-enabled translators lack the adequate knowledge of nuances of each language. This is where arises the need of expert language translators in Delhi and around the nation. These seasoned professionals are well-versed with the nuances of various languages. The translation agencies in Delhi and other metropolitan cities have also laid pressure on the fact that the human translators are still in need to capture and measure the strong impact or the pain points of the localised or translated content piece.

A look ahead at what 2019 holds for the Translation Industry

As per the expert predictions, the need for translation and localisation won’t stop but will keep on growing as the globalisation is currently at its peak. Linguistic experts expect to see a massive rise in the number of language translators in 2019 and beyond. While AI’s penetration in the industry will become fierce, it’s advised that the translation professionals need to fear about losing jobs but should flex a little as per the changing technologies. While the robots and translation applications would do a lot of first translation, the human perspective will always be there for the editorial perspective.
