Tap Into the World’s Largest Accessible Translation Memory Corpus
Translation memories (TMs) are core assets for language service providers, in-house localization departments, or government translation units.
Access to a large corpus of reference data is essential to fine-tuning translation management and productivity systems, reduce turnaround time, all while ensuring linguists have what they need to deliver quality translations.
So valuable are TMs as assets, especially in this era of growing tools agnosticism, that enterprises can no longer afford a DIY strategy when it comes to translation memory data. Many organizations have decided that acquiring TM data is an important and enabling part of their business strategy.
UTH International is a vendor of multilingual information processing solutions. They offer a multilingual, big data platform packed with tens of billions of human translation units. And this platform continues to expand through the company’s sharing-economy model.
UTH International engages in what can be described as an accurate division across vertical fields. Their database contains more than 7.5 billion human translation units (as of the end of September 2016) across 15 Level I, 41 Level II, and 178 Level III fields.
The collection includes 2.6 billion Chinese-English translation units and 1.8 billion English-other-language units from across various sectors, such as media, IT and telecoms, and legal.
Other major domains include patents, automotive, aerospace and aviation, food quality and safety, travel and leisure, e-learning, retail, political science, utility and energy, banking and finance, life sciences, manufacturing, and so on.
UTH International runs all corpora through a quality control process that comprises corpus procurement, collection, pre-input check, fields classification, document alignment and QA, de-duplication, and final processing.
What’s more, they carry these corpora in 27 languages: Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese-Simplified, Chinese-Traditional, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Romania, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Lao, and Khmer. More languages will go online before 2016 ends, per the company’s plan.
It is noteworthy that UTH International works closely with academia and research organizations worldwide in co-building teaching- and research-oriented corpora. It has also been proactively engaged in the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, which covers a total of 53 official languages (and the parallel corpora related to some of these languages are very inadequate).
UTH International provides data samples and pricing on request. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website.
