The globalization process has begun several decades ago. It has led to a considerable increase in political and business contacts between different states, as well as to the tourism development. The rapidly developing globalization process is underlined by universal foreign language penetration and it has told positively upon different area of our living. English is conventionally regarded as the international language. English language is spoken with different level of proficiency by millions of people in the world. Almost every person in the world has a common understanding of English. Meanwhile, other languages are less widespread. When people face the document or text created in a foreign language they're searching for a way to conceive what it's saying.
Translation process is a procedure of interpreting text created in one language to another language. Traditionally it is accepted that there is two basic ways of translation: automatic and manual translation. Manual translation is the oldest kind of translation and it consists in just translation of the text or document phrase by phrase by a person. At the same time automatic translation process is an invention of the modern technical advance and it has become popular not so long ago. Automatic translation of the text may be accomplished with the help of specially developed PC software, like Google, Prompt, or it can also be done on-line at the web sites dedicated to foreign languages translation.
We have already automated numerous processes. But nevertheless, what concerns automatic translation there are some minuses. Taking into consideration that there are a great number of special fixed expressions in any language, it is impossible to foresee all the future cases in translation. That is why the program uses the most frequently used meaning of the word, and it's not always the most appropriate version for translation. Moreover, sometimes the software translates the fixed expression word by word, and as a consequence the meaning of the phrase is changed. The most obvious plus of the automatic translation process is speed. But nevertheless, essential documents you'd better translate manually or contact special translation companies.
