Translating On the Go? Investigating the Potential of Multimodal Mobile Devices for Interactive Translation Dictation

Julian Zapata

Resum

Aquest article proveeix un panorama general sobre la traducció dictada interactiva (TDI), tècnica de traducció emergent que implica interactuar amb dispositius multimodals activats amb la veu i el tacte com ara els ordinadors de pantalla tàctil, les tauletes i els telèfons intel·ligents. L'autor examina l'interès d'integrar noves tècnicas i tecnologies al sector de la traducció, proveeix una breu descripció d'un experiment recent que investiga el potencial i els reptes de la TDI, i conclou indicant algunes avingudes per a la recerca futura.

Paraules clau

traducció dictada interactiva, interacció multimodal, reconeixement de la veu, computació ubiqua, computació mòbil, computació en núvol
