Forum on health translations and the emerging use of automated translations in Australia: The NSW Multilingual Health Information Stakeholders ForumFrancoise
In the past two years, the NSW Multicultural Health Communication Service (MHCS) has seen an increase in non-government organisations and health services using translation companies that are based overseas, as well as the use of Google Translate, and social translation models. Evidence from overseas suggests that the gap between human and machine translation is decreasing, especially when post-editing checks are put into place.
A forum next month will review those issues.
Jacqueline and Françoise are planning to attend.
