AI (Artificial Intelligence).
Many of us have been inundated with information as to how AI will change the way we live. In the language service field, we have embraced AI for years. We see platforms and services use artificial intelligence to allow us to speak with others through a downloadable app. We have read about Google Translate and the success they have had in parsing language use to come up with reliable translation for personal use.
With all the advances we have made and all the work that has been done, we still have to ask key questions before we use these platforms and services for business purposes. We know that when writing in our native language, we use proofreaders, grammar checkers, editors and other means to ensure our message is one hundred percent accurate. If we miss one period or misuse one grammar tense, we correct what was written and update the piece to ensure we communicate our message effectively.
Let’s hope AI continues to improve and continues to see accuracy rates above 70, 80 or even 90%. Businesses can’t be in a position to post websites or content in their customers’ or employees’ native languages if it isn’t 100% accurate. It just isn’t ready for business use. We should have fun with it and use the apps in social situations and when meetingpeople we can’t communicate with, but with business, we need to be accurate.
