How to Leverage Chat GTP translation capabilities

As language technology continues to advance, more and more people testing Chat GTP translation capabilities. And this raises a question: can someone skip the services of a Language Service Provider (LSP) altogether and rely solely on Chat GTP? In this blog, we will discuss this! 

What are Chat GTP translation capabilities? 

Chat GTP is an AI-powered language model developed by OpenAI that can generate text in response to a given prompt. It has shown impressive results in a variety of natural language processing tasks, including language translation, content generation, and text summarization. So the short answer is yes.

But we need to understand that it is just another powerful tool that can greatly aid in the translation process, machine translation has existed for a while now. The translation process has been relying on Machine Translation Post Editing or MTPE for years now. 

Machine Translation Post Editing or MTPE is a process in which an automatic, automated, or instant translation is later edited by a human translator to refine the text and ensure that the final work meets the client’s expectations. 

GTP Chat, as an artificial intelligence model, has the ability to learn and understand natural language, making it potentially one of the best-automated translation tools. By using this technology combined with a post-edition step done by a specialized linguist, translators can save a considerable amount of time and effort and reach translations on complex topics quickly and easily. 

What’s the role of Chat GTP in the translation industry? 

The rise of chat GPT and other AI technologies has actually created new opportunities for human translators and post-editors. By learning how to work with these tools and becoming adept at giving them the correct prompts and guidance, linguists can take advantage of their speed and efficiency to streamline their workflows and tackle more complex projects. This not only increases their productivity, but also allows them to focus on more creative and specialized tasks, such as transcreation, localization, and multilingual marketing.

Furthermore, it’s important to remember that AI and machine translation technologies are not infallible. While they can process vast amounts of data quickly and with high accuracy, they still make mistakes and can’t match the intuition and expertise of a human linguist. This is why the role of the post-editor remains so important in the translation process, as they can identify and correct any errors or inconsistencies that the machine may have missed, and actually know if the translation matches the tone of the source material. 

In short, the increasing use of AI and computer-assisted translation in the language services industry presents an opportunity for linguists to learn new skills and take advantage of the speed and efficiency that these technologies offer. By working alongside AI and computer-assisted tools, human linguists can continue to provide high-quality, accurate translations that meet their clients’ needs and exceed their expectations.

What about LSPs in an AI world? 

Despite the capabilities of Chat GTP, there are still several reasons why the work of an LSP is needed:

  1. Quality: an LSP can ensure the quality of the language services provided. It offers standardized processes that guarantee translations are correct and culturally accurate. While Chat GTP can generate impressive results if what you look for is just speed, it may not always be able to catch every error or inconsistency or understand whether a term conveys the same tone as the source material. 
  2. Expertise: There are certain nuances and subtleties of language that Chat GTP doesn’t capture. By working with an LSP, clients can access the expertise of human translators and editors, who can provide insights and feedback that a machine cannot.
  3. Customer centricity: While Chat GTP is capable of generating text based on a given prompt, it may not always be able to capture the specific tone, style, or context that a client requires. By working with an LSP, clients can provide detailed instructions and feedback to ensure that the language services provided meet their specific needs and requirements.

While Chat GTP and similar language technologies may change the landscape of language services in the future, it is clear that human expertise and the benefits of working with an LSP will remain important.
