Communication with speakers of other languages has become much easier thanks to Translution's Pro.
The software means that anyone wanting to write an email in English to a friend in France and Germany,
for example, simply presses a button and the email will automatically arrive in the recipient's inbox,
translated into their language. Similarly, incoming emails are translated into the user's own language
or nominated language. The process is completely automatic and requires no special skill on the part of the user.
Translution Pro gives users accurate, automatic translation of emails, attachments,
documents and web pages instantly, without the need to cut and paste or to change ways of working.
Also included are a set of tools which deliver enhanced quality of the translation.
Translution Pro provides a service that for the first time will enable individuals to communicate
and collaborate by email without language barriers, with enhanced translation quality.
Translution Pro consists of add-ins for Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Internet
Explorer and two standalone applications, Translution Control Centre (TCC) and Translution Dictionary
The Outlook Add-in intercepts outgoing and incoming emails and determines if translation is required.
It then redirects the emails for translation, translates them, and forwards them to the appropriate recipient.
Emails can also be translated into multiple languages for multiple recipients automatically. Also, attachments
(in supported formats) can be automatically translated along with the Email.
This process is undertaken without affecting normal working procedures and imposes no extra work.
The add-ins to Word and Internet Explorer provide document and web page translations via processing by the
Translution Central Site. With the Word Add-in you can translate sections of a document or an entire word document.
Translution Control Centre (TCC) is a great way to translate. Extremely easy to use it helps you to load and submit
files to Translution Central for translation and it updates you with the status of the translation. TCC works as an
interface between the user and the Translution Central site. Documents, emails, pdf's and web pages sent for translation
are automatically encrypted to ensure absolute confidentiality.
TCC also provides an interface which enables you to translate text and translate emails as well as translate files.
Translution Dictionary Manager (TDM) has been designed to easily update the user's dictionaries. Using TDM you can
enhance improve the quality of your translations. Whenever a term in your document is not found in one of the system
dictionaries, you will be able to add it to your Translution Dictionary, thereby ensuring a correct translation from then on.
You can also easily mark up text that you don't want translated (we call these DNT's). For example, If you were to use an
MT system to translate "Steve French came to town" into French, the resulting translation could very well be "Le francais de
Steve sont venus a la ville". The name Steve French is translated literally. This is easily overcome by marking the text as a
DNT or adding it to your Translution Dictionary
Translution dictionaries are easy to use and can be created by non-linguists as well as linguist. Translution dictionaries
are backed up automatically to Translution Central, so even when you change computers or your system breaks down you will
always have access to them.
