The Translator And New Technologies

Posted on April 29, 2017 in News

Every day new technologies arise and it may seem the work of translators or revisers is obsolete. However, there are occasions in which we deparamos with egregious errors in pages of major newspapers and magazines in transcendence world and, even more evident, in electronic media that privilege speed above innumerous quality of texts and even own constant in the same information. In this context, the work of translators and reviewers becomes important and, so far, irreplaceable. New technologies that flood the market, are only capable of interpreting individual words, sentences short and in a literal sense; to understand complex texts through a binary logic, incurring the obvious error of omitting between the lines, shades, subjectivities. Programs that ammount to translators in so-called computer-assisted translation not suppressed in any way, the careful work of translators and reviewers. As its name implies, this type of translation uses technology to speed up your work mechanical help to remember similar phrases that were already translated in the text or to standardize the terminology in technical texts. Trying to get an automatic translation that requires high-level cognitive, until now, have been in no more than attempts, and judging so that automatic translators are the most popular will is far from achieving a degree of satisfaction moderated by any moderately demanding reader.

The navette course is a physical test that aims to measure the maximum of the individual endurance capacity, i.e. the time enduring running. This test involves rushing 20 meters back and forth to signal the radio; you have to reach the 20 m line until the Beeb and once sound turn you and go to another line to 20 meters before returning it to sound pip. The navette course ends when it cannot reach the line of twenty meters until the beep sounds. The speed of pip is slow at the beginning but increases as the test progresses.

Every passing minute is a period. The test has about 20 periods. This physical test of endurance is one of the toughest that there is, since the course navette have to stop every 20 feet to turn and to restart (this wears much more) and also the speed increases and becomes very fast at the end. For the guys from 18 to 30 years that make practicing sports regularly and are not sedentary a result of the course navette 12 13 periods is a very good result already. For the girls of this age group a very good result would already be between 9 10 periods. If you have to pass the resistance test course navette in your Institute or to enter the national fire brigade, at INEF may that article of training plan of the navette during 6 months course or the article how interested improve endurance.
