Abstract: As products and processes become more complex, and companies become more export oriented, the need for rapid translation of documentation increases. But conventional translation methods can|t keep up. Now, research in machine translation technology is on the verge of providing a practical answer. Siemens R&D groups in Spain, the USA, West Germany and Belgium are close to introducing exceptionally fast and accurate systems for translating specialised texts in several languages.

Keywords: documentation; language processing technology; machine translation software; technical publishing; global markets; specialised texts.
