Should you consider Machine Translation? Image
@rk_process9 #ChatGPT has generated more interest & debate in recent months than any other #tech in decades. It has accomplished tasks previously only seen in #scifi movies or read in fiction, marking a significant milestone in the field of #ai.
In 1950, father of #AI - Alan Turing, devised a test where a #machine could be considered AI, if one can't differentiate its responses from a human's. If a machine can accurately #translate text from one language to another, like a human, it would pass the Turing test.

#MoxVeda – Adding a new language to your website was never easier
By @rk_process9
I often encounter concerns from my clients and prospects about the challenges of delivering their #website and mobile #apps in multiple #languages, to be able to reach out to more #customers .
1/n Image
Many express that it takes a lot of effort, dedicated manpower, knowledge of multiple languages, a reliable #translationagency, management of #translation processes, and much more.
They find it hard to believe when I tell them that implementing #MoxVeda for #website and #app #localization can eliminate all these efforts.

2. Use the language and cultural norms of the target market in your content. This will increase its relevance and make it more appealing to the local audience.

Have you heard of PALATAL MYOCLONUS (tremor), a very rare condition affecting muscles of the soft palate. It presents with a persistent CLICKING NOISE. Where is the lesion? #neuroscience #neurotwitter #Medical
Precise #localization: It occurs due to infarction, bleed or tumor within the Guillain-Mollaret Triangle in the brainstem. The triangle includes the midbrain red nucleus, medulla inferior olivary nucleus, and contralateral cerebellum dentate nucleus.
Often patients report tinnitus and merely asking patients to open their mouth demonstrates the characteristic clicking noise. The patients sense the sound in their ears.

Oh no.

I saw a post complaining about an upcoming game's #localization saying that "hiring a guy" to do a script translation doesn't cost much at all.

And that if you know the language, it's not hard.

Let me tell you why that's wrong.
#1 Localizing a game isn't just a guy translating text

- Localization takes a team
- Localizing a game encompasses more than just raw text translation (graphics, VO, QA, ratings, etc.)
- The process has a lot of stages that can even take years…
#2 Localization costs A LOT

- Acquisition/licensing
- Dev time
- Translation & editing
- Voice recording
- Ratings
- QA
- Packaging materials
- Promotional/marketing

The list goes on and on...…

I feel furious. Some international actors love their hegemony. They will keep talking of #localization, but never allow vocal local actors to access discussion platforms. @SmrutiPatel11 @RezaKChyBD @Nanet_Antequisa @annemstreet @A4EP2
But the days of this flawed power structure are numbered. We would continue being assertive against such racism and neo-colonialism. We are creating our own much more meaningful platforms. The architecture must change.
The tragedy is, those who are entrusted to promote the #localization process, are the ones who are manipulating it so that nothing changes while they keep pretending of trying for change.

Thread 1/14 - In light of the powerful #BlackLivesMatter movement going global there is a growing number of critical narratives being released on the systematic racism the Aid Sector in the Global South. #SSOT
2/14 As someone who has worked within the system in #SouthSudan for over a decade, I will share some of my experiences & insight on the problem. I also want to acknowledge this from my view as a Khawaja & encourage #POC & specifically South Sudanese to also share their stories.
3/14 Let us start by stating that white privilege is even more pronounced when working in this context - from your salary, benefits, danger pay, R&R’s, free accommodation, and assigned domestic help etc etc...

Localized avatars to be more representative of the end user in each country. So cool @MinaMarkham #clarity2019 #localization #designsystems
. @MinaMarkham on her process for localizing styles for @SlackHQ in Japan:
1. Design research
2. First iteration of designing the webpage
3. Design with cultural elements
4. Hide animation unless you have JavaScript enabled in browser
Note: localize w/ extreme care #clarity2019
It's important to localize styles with extreme care, respect and cultural appreciation (not cultural appropriation).
