Machine Translation Needs the Human Touch For Professional Global Business Communications

Pretend you’re traveling in a foreign country. You receive an urgent call from the hospital saying your spouse’s heart has been imprisoned. Would you at least feel relieved to learn that he or she won’t fall over?Human Touch image on Computer screen
If you had to rely on machine translation of that country’s language, that’s just what you might hear, or something equally alarming, amusing or confusing.

ASIST offers high-quality translations at affordable rates without ever using machine translations.

How Do We Manage This?
Being in this industry for three decades we have developed long-term partnerships with top translation teams and pass on negotiated savings directly to you, the client. Our unique multi-step process and the use of industry-leading translation memory software also allow us to pass on savings directly to the customer-the more you translate, the more you save!!
For the cost-conscious consumer, machine translations are an enormous temptation-easy to use and free (for the most part). Well, as the adage goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. This is the case with machine translation. Machine translations are sometimes capable of delivering a band-aid for translating brief snippets of information, giving “gist” translations-they are unreliable and cannot translate complex information.
Google Translate looks for patterns in hundreds of millions of documents and makes “intelligent guesses” for what the appropriate translation should be. Since the translations are generated by machines, not all translations will be perfect.[1] A company cannot stake its brand or reputation on “intelligent guesses.”
ASIST exceeds industry standards in training linguists and in customer care. Through our project management process we have developed exceptional Quality Control standards that ensure conformity and consistency to a client’s individual requirements.
By choosing ASIST, a client is ensuring high-quality translations provided by native linguists and a speedy delivery at affordable prices.
