WinterGreen Research announces the following study: Language Translation Software Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2014-2020.

Language translation software technology is reaching a more mature state utilizing hybrid technology, comprehensive solutions are available that have never been available before. Comprehensive solutions combine the best attributes of rule-based and statistical machine translation. These integrated systems are able to meet the full range of translation needs on an enterprise scale. Systems are powered by hybrid machine translation (MT) engines. IT combination od rules systems and statistical systems achieve a solution that is flexible and supports localization for marketing, legal, patent, and smart phone solutions. These are able to support a “black-box solution” due to the complexity of the software implementation and resources needed to successful train an engine.

The 2014 study has 536 pages, 151 tables and figures. Worldwide markets are poised to achieve continuing growth as the language translation software systems are put in place to support mobile end point information collections that are localized. Enterprise server has reached a long sought after milestone. With language translation software technology reaching a more mature state, comprehensive solutions are available that have never been available before. Comprehensive solutions combine the best attributes of rule-based and statistical machine translation. These integrated systems are able to meet the full range of translation needs on an enterprise scale. Systems are powered by hybrid machine translation (MT) engines. IT enterprise-level machine translation combines rules systems and statistical systems to achieve a hybrid solution. These are a “black-box solution” due to the complexity of the software implementation and resources needed to successful train an engine.

Iterative software releases are evolving. They represent a goal executives want to reach. Iterative software releases allow larger vendors to compete with smaller, more nimble companies by making their feature function packages more robust. Meeting the Iterative software releases challenge depends on achieving an agile software development environment. Continuous localization represents automation of localization resource bundles. Implementing internationalization depends on best practice systems use at the engineering level and further down the production chain. The largest IT localization are approached by bridging the gap between development and reuse of existing code modules. Products are positioned to address challenges directly. The concept of bringing translation management practices to overall software development is significant. Because language translation systems implement such robust content management solutions, a company can leverage its language translation expertise to offer hybrid sophisticated content management systems. These have the prospect of building much broader markets for localization for all software applications.
